Improving Seed Traits

Chuck Zimmerman

Improving nitrogen/nutrient utilization (45%) was the top choice in answer to the ZimmPoll question, “What should the next seed traits focus on?” That was followed by drought tolerance at 23%, improve food/fiber profiles 14%, improve current traits 9% and other 9%. If you selected “other” what would you suggest? So there you go researchers. Let’s get with it and bring on some new traits!

Our next ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “Do you believe in man made climate change?” I was going to use the term global warming but now we have found out that cooling is going on too so the current buzz term on this is climate change. Let us know what you think and thank you for participating.

And if you have any questions you want to suggest for future ZimmPolls please let us know.
