Combining synthetic biology
and gene editing...
to develop next-generation
herbicide resistant crops
We are committed to bring solutions for a more sustainable and efficient weed management, reducing herbicide use.
Weeds have always been a major concern for agriculture, as they compete with crops for water, light and nutrients.
Herbicides are the main tool to control weeds, but their use is limited in many cases because they are toxic to the crop. Also, the repeated use of one herbicide leads to the evolution of herbicide resistant weeds which affect the sustainability of this technology.
Our technologies are distinguished by
We develop tools for producers to apply herbicide combinations, in order to reduce their burden on the environment.
Herbicide mixes delay the evolution of resistant weeds, extending the life of the technologies
