High Phytase Cereals

Tech ID: 12.533

Key Features

  • “HighPhy”: High Phytase Wheat
  • Non-GM wheat with seed phytase levels 5-8x the levels commonly seen in wheat
  • Demonstrated enhanced P-uptake in animal trials
  • Benefits for animal feed, human nutrition and the environment

Description

Non-GM wheat with seed phytase levels 5-8x the levels commonly seen in wheat. Benefits for animal feed, human nutrition and the environment. Avoid costs of synthetic phytase feed additives. Significantly reduced phytate in grain-based human diets. Germplasm and methods for easily breeding and selecting this valuable trait.
