Growing Tomorrow’s Fuel Today®

Using advanced plant breeding and biotechnology, we are developing dedicated energy crops as raw materials for renewable transportation fuels, electricity and bio-based products.

Our products are making the large-scale production of biofuels possible by increasing yields, lowering costs, facilitating processing and refining, and even helping reduce greenhouse gases.

Many of the same traits that benefit energy crops also benefit traditional row crops. So, Ceres supplies traits and technology to other well-known crop developers of corn, soy and other non-energy crops.
