We have established crop platforms in canola, rice, flax, cassava, potato, and are now developing platforms in wheat, corn and peanut. In canola, we started with our elite, herbicide-tolerant canola hybrid parent seed that was adapted to the North American market geographic and climate needs.
Our first commercial product, SU Canola™ is a non-transgenic sulfonylurea (SU) herbicide tolerant canola providing an alternative weed control option for canola farmers globally, and new opportunities for higher profits, lower herbicide costs, non-GM premiums and a synergistic option for soybean rotations.
We are developing and currently testing unique and differentiated non-transgenic herbicide and disease tolerant traits in rice that will provide farmers globally with more effective and efficient weed control and disease tolerance options.
We have developed and are currently field testing the first non-transgenic herbicide tolerance trait to address the need of the Canadian flax market for an effective weed control package that can improve yield while lowering herbicide input costs.
We Are Transforming The Industry
“We aim to provide choices for farmers that help them grow nutritious food, while being environmentally responsible, stewarding the same patch of soil their parents and grandparents did before them.”
