Australian Grain Technologies (AGT) is Australia's largest plant breeding company, and the market leader in wheat genetics.
Our work at AGT is a search for the exemplary.
An intensive process of inter-crossing, field and laboratory experimentation, data collection and analysis, and genetic selection over many years culminates in the creation of each of our new field crop varieties. This exhaustive and innovative process leads to new varieties that greatly impact upon the profitability, sustainability and prosperity of grain growers all over the country.
Hatchet CL Plus was tested as RAC1843 and is a Clearfield® variety derived from the very early maturing variety Axe. Hatchet CL Plus has an adaptation pattern very similar to its parent Axe, as well as offering higher grain yield, CCN resistance, better stem rust resistance, and imidazolinone tolerance. Hatchet CL Plus tends to perform best relative to other varieties in years which experience droughts, in shorter season environments, or in later sowing situations.
We are leading the way in the development and application of new technologies in plant breeding, with the aim of delivering greater value to our industry.Find out more
