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.
Catapult (RAC2484) may be viewed as a 'longer season' Scepter, with a mid-late maturity allowing growers to achieve Scepter-like yields when sown in late April. Catapult offers a unique combination of features to growers, combining this maturity type with yellow leaf spot resistance, CCN resistance and AH quality (in SA/Vic/sNSW). WA classification to be sought late 2019. Seed available for the 2020 growing season.
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
