Enhanced Sweet Sorghum For Bioenergy Applications

PolyGenomX (PGX) is in advanced discussions with a leading Australian University to partner on a project focused on the development of a range of higher yielding, polygenomic and salt-tolerant Sweet Sorghum cultivars as a superior feedstock for biofuel production for cellulosic ethanol and a range of other products.

PGX will lead on the development of the polygenomic species. The University will formally test and validate the new polyploid varieties.  We also need a commercial Seed Partner.

The Seed Partner(s) will be asked to contribute elite cultivars as well as partially fund the development of new polygenomic varieties.  Following completion of the project, the Seed Partner will, in turn, receive exclusive rights to the use of the new varieties and a range of differential performance data related to the parent and new plants.

This project provides a unique opportunity for up to three commercial producers of Sorghum seed to gain a significant, unique and enduring market advantage in terms of being first to market with new polyploid varieties which retain all of the superior characteristics of their diploid parent lines in addition to providing such significantly increased productivity and general robustness as to make them market leaders.
