S&W Seed Company licenses sunflowers to Eastern Europe
Russia and the Ukraine are the two largest sunflower markets, representing nearly 60% of the global sunflower production. This agreement highlights the first commercial activity that S&W’s recent acquisition of SV Genetics has had in these lucrative markets. The two licensed varieties are traditional polyunsaturated oil types, however the licensee is also evaluating high oleic types, and a variety resistant to Imidazilone herbicide. Additionally, the licensee is expected to evaluate S&W’s alfalfa seed products in 2017, highlighting what S&W believes is a prime example of the complimentary fit of the recent SV Genetics (SVG) acquisition by S&W.
SVG has licensing agreements with different partners to provide its grain sorghum, forage sorghum and sunflower genetics throughout the world, including Australia, parts of South America, Western and Eastern Europe, Russia, Pakistan and South Africa.
Mark Grewal, president and chief executive officer of S&W Seed Company, commented, “We are extremely pleased with the addition of this new licensee to the portfolio of seed companies that are working to expand the production and distribution of our newly acquired sunflower seed varieties across the world. The Ukraine and Russia are the two largest sunflower markets in the world, and this licensee chose to move forward with our varieties due to the diversity and strength of these two varieties, and also the SV Genetics breeding program as a whole. We look forward to working with this new seed company on a go forward basis to expand our sunflower operations, and potentially our alfalfa operations as well.”
