Winfield, Chromatin to jointly market sorghum seed

Under the agreement, Winfield Solutions will partner with Chromatin and its subsidiary, Sorghum Partners, LLC, to provide and develop market leading hybrid forage sorghum seed products that will be marketed and distributed through the Winfield Solutions network of customers in North America.

Winfield Solutions LLC, a subsidiary of Land O' Lakes and a leader in providing inputs to agricultural markets, and Chromatin, Inc., a privately held provider of innovative crop breeding technology, sorghum seed products and energy crop feedstocks, announced they have joined forces to market and develop forage sorghum hybrids.

Under the agreement, Winfield Solutions will partner with Chromatin and its subsidiary, Sorghum Partners, LLC, to provide and develop market leading hybrid forage sorghum seed products that will be marketed and distributed through the Winfield Solutions network of customers in North America.

In addition, the agreement calls for Chromatin and Sorghum Partners to provide Winfield Solutions with access to its diverse and expanding portfolio of proprietary sorghum lines, and to develop, test and produce forage sorghum hybrids that meet the needs of customers and dealers.

"This alliance will leverage our ongoing breeding, technology development and seed production programs that focus on providing industry-leading forage sorghum," said Jeff Widder, Chromatin's vice-president of seeds and manager of Sorghum Partners, LLC.

"We will work with Winfield Solutions to expand our portfolio of forage sorghum products and to access new market channels."

"Growing high-value forages is our No. 1 objective every day," said Ricky Rice, manager of Winfield Solutions' Forage Sorghum business.

"Our alliance with Chromatin will enable us to focus on our customers' needs, while providing access to leading products and technologies."

Through this alliance, Winfield Solutions and Chromatin will collaborate to access and improve various types of forage sorghum, including traditional forage sorghum, sudan grass, sorghum-sudan grass hybrids and sweet sorghums.

These forage crops allow growers to produce highly nutritious feed for grazing, hay, green chop or silage while requiring less water and fewer inputs than other livestock feeds.
