“With our hybrids farmers can benefit from a clear step change in genetics, always with additional yield gains and consistent results in very varied soil and climate conditions, including in continental Europe.”

Today most of the corn hybrids sold on the market come from the well-known American dent or European Flint genetic groups. A lack of diversity limits Heterosis potential. Euralis Semences chose to invest in a worldwide inventory of the genetic material to discover still unexplored corn genetic sources, and as a result Tropical Dent® family was found. The advantages of the Tropical Dent® products are: yield, stability and drydown.

Since the arrival in Europe of corn hybrids in the 1950s, the quality of seeds offered to farmers has been improving constantly. The average gain in yield over fifty years was more than 7.5 t/ha thanks to European flint and American dent genetics. Over ten years ago, Euralis Semences set up a strategy focused on research of new genetic pools of corn families in order to pursue the genetic progress curve. After extensive inventory work assisted by molecular marking tools, Euralis Semences research team discovered an original source coming from tropical countries.

Called Tropical Dent®, this family brings a very strong heterosis effect to our genetic, because it is very distant from usual lines” explains Pierre Carolo, Director of our Corn Breeding Program.
