About Us

An Agricultural Biotechnology Company

We are an agricultural biotechnology company that develops and markets seeds to produce crops for bioenergy and other purposes. We use a combination of advanced plant breeding and biotechnology to develop our products.

In bioenergy, our hybrids can make the large-scale production of biofuels and biopower more economic and sustainable by increasing yields, lowering costs, facilitating processing and refining, and even helping reduce greenhouse gases.

In food, feed and fiber crops, we out-license our traits and gene technology to other well-known seed developers. We also market our proprietary genome viewer software, known as Persephone, to plant and biomedical researchers.
