SGB has developed the world's first line of elite, high-performing Jatropha hybrids with significantly greater yields and profitability compared to existing commercial material. SGB's JMax™ hybrid seeds result in greater yield, uniformity and vigor, while significantly reducing handling and deployment costs for growers.
SGB's rigorous scientific program provides a continuous pipeline of attributes and trait improvements, enabling JMax™ hybrids to reach their full genetic yield potential while maintaining performance in adverse environments.
Key attributes and traits include:
|Key Hybrid Attributes||Benefits to Growers|
|Higher Yield: Allow crop to reach its full genetic yield potential||Increased Profitability: Enhance seed and oil yield performance for better ROI per hectare|
|Improved Plant Health: Better utilization of water and nutrients; Improved disease resistance, insect tolerance and stress tolerance||Preserve Yield Potential: Maintain yield in adverse environments|
SGB's proprietary technology for the mass production of hybrid Jatropha seeds enables a significant production increase over traditional propagation methods. SGB's JMax™ hybrid seed production technology:
JMax™ hybrids have been tested and developed for a range of climatic and soil conditions. Through its research and development program, SGB continues to expand the regions for which JMax™ hybrid seeds are available.
