Based on the field results obtained from our work with Camelina traits, we execute non-exclusive research licenses, enabling companies to evolve our traits within crops of interest. We have non-exclusive research license agreements with:

The Crop Science division of Bayer AG, formerly Monsanto Company, for the evaluation of two traits in soybean

Forage Genetics, to test a series of traits in forage sorghum

Increase crop performance and crop yield using Camelina image

GDM, for the evaluation of three traits in soybean

Simplot, for the evaluation of our traits in potato

These research licenses are intended to provide market leaders in their respective crops with an attractive opportunity to test our traits and develop data at their own expense.


We are targeting crops for development to help farmers improve the productivity of their land and meet the rising demand for food and feed while also creating significant economic value.

An oilseed crop used for human consumption and animal feed that can be harvested for oil and protein used in food and industrial applications. We are targeting a 20% or greater increase in soybean seed yield.

Potatoes are the most important non-cereal staple food crop for humans after wheat and rice. Although we have no in-house R&D activities specific to potato, we enabled Simplot to evaluate three of our traits in potato.

Forage crops are grown expressly for biomass used for feeding livestock. Typical forage crops include both annual and perennial crops such as various grasses, silage corn, alfalfa, and sorghum. We have enabled Forage Genetics to evaluate five of our traits in sorghum crops.

Canola produces a higher value edible oil favored by consumers because it has a healthier fatty acid profile than corn or soybean oil. We are targeting a 10-20% increase in canola seed yield and have already tested traits C3003 and C3004 in canola.

Used globally for animal feed, starch production, and other items, corn has an efficient C4 photosynthesis system. We are targeting a 10% yield increase in corn and have conducted early development of our traits in corn.
