Purdue issues short-stature corn license


Short-stature popcorn developed by Purdue University researchers is getting closer to commercialization.

An exclusive license for the non-GMO trait, called D16, has been issued by Purdue Innovates Office of Technology Commercialization to Romney-based Ag Alumni Seed.

President and CEO Jay Hulbert tells Brownfield they have been working with researchers at their facility for nearly 10 years to develop the technology.

“We are currently making experimental crosses at our nursery in Argentina which we will be testing this summer here in Indiana,” he says.
