BASF has announced a new brand for its hybrid wheat lines, called Ideltis.

Officially launched June 7, the company says its hybrid wheat is intended to provide farmers with “higher and more stable performance in yield and quality.”

“Ideltis stands for our commitment to hybrid wheat and the transition of the wheat crop system in the longterm,” says Vincent Gros, president, BASF Agricultural Solutions. “With Ideltis, we are unlocking the full potential of wheat. Through our global research platform, we anticipate providing growers and the entire value chain hybrid wheat that is tailored to their local needs and consistently delivers better, more stable yield.”

Dr. Jochen C. Reif, head of the department of breeding research at Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research in Gatersbleben, Germany, says that the production of hybrid wheat seeds is complex, and “that is why it took time to develop breakthrough technologies that enable future broad commercialization of hybrid wheat.”

Ideltis hybrid wheat is expected to be available from the middle of the decade, and will initially be available to farmers in key wheat growing regions of Europe and North America.
