By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- According to news reporting originating from Alexandria, Virginia, by VerticalNews journalists, a patent by the inventors Tarter, Jennifer Ann (Champaign, IL); Grote, Edwin Michael (Milton, WI); Rasmussen, Christopher Cole (Algona, IA), filed on May 25, 2010, was cleared and issued on December 4, 2012.
The assignee for this patent, patent number 8324479, is Pioneer Hi Bred International Inc (Johnston, IA).
Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The goal of plant breeding is to combine, in a single variety or hybrid, various desirable traits. For field crops, these traits may include resistance to diseases and insects, resistance to heat and drought, reducing the time to crop maturity, greater yield, and better agronomic quality. With mechanical harvesting of many crops, uniformity of plant characteristics such as germination, stand establishment, growth rate, maturity, plant height and ear height, is important. Traditional plant breeding is an important tool in developing new and improved commercial crops."
In addition to obtaining background information on this patent, VerticalNews editors also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "According to the invention, there is provided a novel maize variety, designated PH134K and processes for making PH134K. This invention relates to seed of maize variety PH134K, to the plants of maize variety PH134K, to plant parts of maize variety PH134K, and to processes for making a maize plant that comprise crossing maize variety PH134K with another maize plant. This invention also relates to processes for making a maize plant containing in its genetic material one or more traits introgressed into PH134K through backcross conversion and/or transformation, and to the maize seed, plant and plant parts produced thereby. This invention further relates to a hybrid maize seed, plant or plant part produced by crossing the variety PH134K or a locus conversion of PH134K with another maize variety."
