The impact of Bioseed in Asia

The Philippines

One breeding station and four testing stations have produced industry leaders in corn and rice. The corn hybrid, 9909, has set the benchmark in ‘disease resistance’, outperforming all other hybrids in the market, while the rice hybrid BCHR 4172 has raised the level of ‘Tungro tolerance’. Several new Bioseed hybrids have been notified for cultivation by the NSB. A strong seed pipeline is in place.
