Improved plants of Brassica oleracea and seeds capable of forming the same are provided. Such plants are fully male and female fertile and possess the usual complement of 18 chromosomes. However, unlike previously available cole crops, these plants exhibit cytoplasmic triazine tolerance when atrazine is applied as a foliar spray at a rate of 1.5 kilograms per hectare. For the first time a triazine herbicide can effectively be used to destroy unwanted broadleaf weeds which have a propensity to grow in the same planting area with the cole crop. Accordingly, an improved process for producing a cole crop is provided through the application of triazine to the planting area.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
