  • Patent number: 9574237
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods for differentiating fertile and sterile plant lines by detecting markers in chloroplast DNA from plants that have not yet flowered as well as from plant seeds. The method may be applied in selecting a seed lot based on the level of contamination of normal fertile plant line seeds being below a predetermined threshold, e.g., below 1% or 0.1%.

  • Patent number: 8952222
    Abstract: Seeds and sunflower plants derived from cultivar RW-B and having increased resistance to herbicides relative to wild-type plants are provided. These plants contain a new genetic mutation in the AHAS gene which confers broad spectrum resistance to a combination of an imidazolinone, a sulfonylurea, a triazolopyrimidine, and a pyrimidinyloxybenzoate herbicide and mixtures thereof, including (i) resistance to cloransulam-methyl present in a concentration of at least 67 grams of active ingredient per hectare; and (ii) resistance to the mix of imazapyr present in a concentration of at least 160 grams per hectare and metsulfuron present in a concentration of at least 10 grams per hectare. RW-B is true breeding for the morphological traits of producing a plant with a single head, a yield of greater than one tonne per hectare and for producing a seed having an oil content of greater than 40%.
