Ceres' sorghum hybrids in Brazil show resilience to dry conditions Ceres' sorghum hybrids appear to have rebounded from dry conditions in Brazil earlier in the season. Harvests are nearing completion and the company expects to announce final results by July. This season the company dispersed its field evaluations across a number of growing areas in south central Brazil in order to mitigate the impact of variations in weather conditions on the performance of its seed products. Sorghum also has a natural tolerance to hot and dry conditions. In addition to its customer evaluations, Ceres has a number of new sorghum hybrids moving forward in its product development pipeline.
