Rapid Inbreeding® produces corn inbred lines in just one year. Instead of the 4-5 generations of selfing needed to reach a reliable level of homozygosity before test crossing, PSR’s Rapid Inbreeding® can do it in three months. The quick return of test cross data allows for fast cycling of yield improvement within populations.
PSR uses its proprietary SMF™ Technology to identify plants that are inbred within a segregating population. PSR’s Rapid Inbreeding® (RI) program is producing thousands of inbred lines every year.
RI Advantage: • Quickly produces inbreds at low cost. • Test cross in less than one year. • Fast cycling of yield improvement within populations. • Shortens time to hybrid commercialization.
PSR Global Genetics
For over 25 years, PSR has also developed its own independent corn genetics. With RI's quick cycling system of new populations, the inbred and hybrid development program has grown into one of the largest in the industry. In 2006, PSR Global Genetics was created as a distributor of these genetics.
