FORT COLLINS/ ANKENY, US: Colorado Wheat Research Foundation Inc (CWRF), Albaugh LLC and Limagrain Cereal Seeds LLC (LCS) have created a new wheat production system CoAxium. The herbicide-tolerant system is a joint collaboration driven to deliver innovative and novel solutions for wheat producers in North America and beyond.

It is a targeted technology platform that combines a new patented herbicide-tolerant trait and elite germplasm together with novel herbicide brands and best-in-class industry stewardship.

“CoAxium wheat production system is an exciting new brand built from the ground up with innovation, performance and grower value in mind. CoAxium help growers maximise their return on investment by controlling tough winter annual grasses in winter wheat. The CoAxium is a combination of a patented herbicide trait, a new herbicide brand and a strong focus on industry stewardship,” said Chad Shelton, global proprietary products director, Albaugh LLC, North America.

“This new technology was asked for and is owned by Colorado wheat farmers. Several years ago, the wheat producers of Colorado approached Colorado State University looking for a new solution to combat the grassy weed problems faced by Colorado wheat growers each year. Not only did it have to work better than what was commercially available, but it also had to be cost-effective. CoAxium Wheat Production System will deliver on that vision,” said Mark Linnebur, president of CWRF.

“As we continue to expand our focus on innovation, CoAxium™ Wheat Production System will establish a wider technology platform that will provide a new tool for growers in the North American cereal market and around the globe. We are excited about working with our new partners and our channel to deliver the CoAxium Wheat Production System technology to wheat farmers,” said Spencer Vance, president of Albaugh LLC, North America.

“Uncontrolled grass weed species cause huge problems for wheat growers. Not only do grass weeds create unwanted competition for moisture, light and key nutrients, the residual seeds also reduce the market value of the resulting grain crop. We are very proud to be part of this partnership comprising genetics, chemistry and growers’ experience to deliver a cost-effective solution to a perennial problem,” concluded Frank Curtis, chief operating officer, LCS.
