Germplasm!

Germplasm is the basis of all breeding and genetics.

We see it as a critical part of our public mission to make useful germplasm available to others for the benefit all. We invite inquiry's about the use and distribution of our germplasm.

Depending on the request this could take up to six months. We work closely with the Texas A&M Office for Technology Commercialization and Texas AgriLife Research to ensure these distributions are fair and transparent.

Other Germplasm

Multiple open pollinated populations have been discovered in our vaults. While this seed is fairly old (1990's) it may be of interest or use to other breeders.

 

Genetics Material

Not currently useful for grain production: We have additional populations useful for QTL linkage mapping.
