New Non-GM Technology Platform

New non-GM technology platform for genetic improvement of sunflower oilseed crop.

Scientists have developed techniques for the genetic improvement of sunflowers using a non-GMO based approach. The new technology platform can harness the plant's own genes to improve characteristics of sunflower, develop genetic traits, which will improve its role as an important oilseed crop.
