Food for the future

We develop plant varieties that reduce the need for pesticides and work towards enhancing our natural biosphere. It’s like evolution on fast-forward.

Rice
RICES BLAST RESISTANCE
INCREASED YIELD

Rice makes up over 25% of calories consumed globally. However, rice cultivation produces high methane emissions, and the threat of pests and diseases leaves farmers with limited options aside from chemical pesticides.

We use gene editing to create natural resistance to diseases, so the world can have more of the good stuff with less pesticides and at a lower carbon cost to the planet.

  • RICES BLAST RESISTANCE

    We create natural resistance to rice blast, a disease which is estimated to destroy enough rice to feed more than 60 million people annually. Preserving rice fields creates more food and supports a more stable and sustainable income for farmers in vulnerable communities.

  • INCREASED YIELD

    Our rice plants have the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions per calorie, through increased yields. Here’s to the rice revolution.
