Alliance provides seed quality control for forage

A producer establishing new tall fescue stands with one of the nontoxic (novel)-endophyte-infected tall fescue varieties needs assurance that the seed actually contains viable nontoxic endophyte. Laboratory tests are now available that can detect the presence or absence of endophyte in the seed as well as determine if the endophyte present is a nontoxic or toxic endophyte (one that produces ergot alkaloids that cause tall fescue toxicosis).

Noble releases four new small grains forages

In the early 1950s, the Noble Foundation established its forage breeding program, specifically developing improved cultivars for four small grains species: rye, wheat, oat and triticale (a rye/wheat hybrid). Through the generations, the program has developed historic new cultivars, such as Elbon, Oklon and Maton rye varieties, that have enhanced agricultural production. Today, the Noble Foundation's small grains breeding program is the longest running breeding program in the Foundation's history.
