- ABOUT US
We are an agricultural biotechnology company addressing the needs of a more prosperous, sustainable planet. We combine advanced plant breeding and biotechnology to develop seeds that can address the limitations of first-generation bioenergy feedstocks, increase crop productivity, reduce crop inputs and improve cultivation on marginal land.
We believe that meeting global demand for more food, feed, fiber and fuel requires new crops, deeper insights, and bioscience innovations from the ground up.
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. Due to the similarities among crops developed for bioenergy and those developed for livestock consumption, we recently initiated sales of forage sorghum, following successful evaluations in the U.S. and Brazil.
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 explorer software, known as Persephone, to plant and biomedical researchers.
