With a larger network, Ceres plans to make its latest generation of products more widely available this season following multiple seasons of pre-market testing and sales to dairies, feedlots and forage producers. Ceres recently announced that in commercial plantings and pre-commercial field evaluations, including independent university tests, its improved forage sorghum hybrids demonstrated yield and other performance advantages over existing products on the market. Higher yields per acre and improved forage quality increase the value of the crop and make it possible for dairies and feedlots to produce more milk and beef per acre.
"With superior products validated by independent sources and a larger sales and distribution network, we expect to surpass last year's sales," said
Ceres is currently accepting seed bookings for its Blade brand hybrids for spring and summer plantings. For its Blade brand seed, Ceres' quality assurance processes include the use of genetic markers to screen out off-types and low performing seed during seed production. The company also automatically includes premium seed treatments for no additional charge. Seed customers can book seed of Blade forage sorghum hybrids at www.BladeSeeds.com.
