Our innovations in Camelina open the doors to a world of possibilities for growers, agriculture, and food businesses that want to increase their revenue through sustainable practices and innovative biotechnology.
We develop improved varieties of elite Camelina germplasm with herbicide tolerance, disease resistance, seed yield, and oil content traits. We are also scaling up new varieties, including both spring and winter Camelina.
Camelina has up to 30 million acres of potential as a cover crop in the United States. The product value-add from our proprietary Camelina varieties is a key differentiator for farmers making planting decisions.
Using our GRAIN technology, we are creating opportunities for growers to discover novel crop traits for key crops, including canola, soybean, corn, potato, and sorghum.
Our proprietary GRAIN platform efficiently mines big data sets and prioritizes actionable gene targets to improve crop productivity. Using this technology, we identify and evaluate novel yield trait genes to improve the field performance and yield of Camelina, and other major food and feed crops.
By targeting 10-20% increases in seed yield, we can significantly increase the value of food and feed crop products such as canola and soybean.
As we help increase the output of major food and feed crops, we're also minimizing the strains on scarce natural resources and positively contributing to global food security.
Our technology is applicable in a wide range of food and feed crops, such as canola, soybean, corn, potato, and sorghum.
We are targeting these 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.
By translating our innovations from Camelina to develop and create insights for increasing the performance of these major commercial crops, we are helping our partners develop sustainable food and feed products such as omega-3 (DHA+EPA) nutritional oils, edible oils, PHA bioplastic, and more.
