Transgenic PhyA2 corn is to be approved soon for field production in China
The transgenic PhyA2 corn is to be approved for field production in China.
The Company’s phytase corn was the first transgenic corn which received the Bio-Safety Certificate from China’s Ministry of Agriculture in December 2009, which brought SEED PPS from $2 to $5 then to $12 quickly.
The application for Seed Production Certificate was submitted in mid 2012, and it's supposed to be approved in mid 2013 by China’s Ministry of Agriculture. The present SEED is so cheap, and the Production Certificate will promote SEED from $1.5 to $3 then to $10 or higher easily. Let's see...
*Ingredient Costs: Corn = $2.00/bu., Soybean Meal = $190.00/ton, Dicalcium Phosphate = $280.00/ton, Phytase = $8.00/lb.
**The phytase product is for example only, not necessarily a recommendation.
• The addition of (0.13 lbs.) phytase at the inclusion level of 150 FTU/lb. will replace 8.1 lbs. of dicalcium phosphate. With the maximum addition of (0.20 lbs.) phytase at the inclusion level of 227 FTU/lb., a replacement of 12.85 lbs. of dicalcium phosphate can be achieved.

Another good news to be expected is that some large seed companies (such as Pioneer, Monsanto) may show interests to buy Origin's Transgenic PhyA2 corn, or collaborate with Origin or to buy Origin, in order to enter the huge seed market in China!
Enzymes are feed additives used in poultry and pig feed. Adding the phytase enzyme to pig and poultry feed leads to a better utilization of phosphorus as well as other trace elements and nutrients. The enzymes xylanase and glucanase improve energy and nutrient utilization from degradation of nonstarch polysaccharides (NSPs). Enzymes thereby contribute toward reducing feed cost and protecting the environment.
BASF is a pioneer in feed enzyme development, formulation, and application. BASF offers the highly effective Natuphos® (phytase) and Natugrain® TS (glucanase, xylanase) enzymes.

Improved animal nutrition while reducing feed cost and protecting the environment:
Less inorganic phosphorus supplementation needed
Better utilization of phosphorus in diet
Lower feed cost
Lower manure disposal cost
Decrease of phosphorus excretion by up to 50%
Less land needed for manure disposal
Reduced water excretion → improved hygiene conditions
Natuphos, the feed phytase enzyme from BASF, is a highly efficient 3-phytase produced from a strain of Aspergillus niger in large-scale fermentation processes.
First of all, Natuphos makes bound phosphorus digestible. In plant-based feed like cereals and oilseeds, up to 80 percent or more of the total phosphorus can be locked up in phytate, the storage form of phosphorus. Phytate is almost indigestible by monogastric animals, such as poultry and pigs. This causes them to excrete considerable amounts of undigested phosphorus from vegetable-feed components.
Adding Natuphos to pig and poultry diets releases other nutrients like calcium, zinc, copper, magnesium, and amino acids as well.
Based on these findings from many feeding trials in pig and poutry, the so-called "Natuphos matrix" was developed.
These giants have assessed phytase PhyA2 for commercial application and they will not do anything, guaranteed! They laugh at the commercial usage, just speak to the companies!! And go visit China, the giants have way more research and genetic resources even within mainland China, it's not even close! They're stacking 8 to 9 purified, proven genes at the optimal insertions, they could have any gene they want. Go visit Monsanto's labs and you'll know truth!
