- This full season synthetic population derived from crosses among commercial and university corn belt dent inbred lines.
- Quite uniform
- Like Revolt, it has the Ga1s trait to discourage cross pollination from unwanted pollen.
Ga1s are naturally occurring traits in corn that will greatly reduce outcrossing with plants that don’t carry the same trait. This trait is called gametophytic incompatibility. This trait helps prevent accepting unwanted pollen from transgenic and other field corn. Revolt and Rebellion are varieties with the Ga1s trait. They were developed by Dr. Frank Kutka and the Seed We Need Project with support from a grant from the Organic Farming Research Foundation. We appreciate Frank’s fascinating work.
