Sorghum under the spotlight during UFS roundtable


During the General Assembly of the UFS (French Union of Seed Producers), experts Arnaud Bouxin (FEFAC) and Frédéric Guedj (Euralis Seeds) took part in a roundtable on how to meet export expectations. They notably discussed the progress of European genetic selection over the last 30 years, and how it is nowadays possible to obtain varieties without tannins, which is a basic demand of cattle feed manufacturers, and therefore a pre-requisite for exporting. Frédéric Guedj also underlined the excellent nutritional qualities of sorghum which place this crop on an equal footing with other cereals.
