THE BEST DEFENSE IS A GOOD OFFENSEWith climate change, insect resistance to pesticides, honeybee colony collapse and more, crops face an increasing number of threats. We’re helping them fight back.
PROTECTING CROPS IN A CHANGING WORLD
Traditional pesticides are proving ineffective against new generations of pests and can have a harmful impact on the environment. We’re working on innovative solutions to solve the emerging challenges crops face.
Our goal: enable farmers to increase yield and reduce the environmental damage caused by traditional pesticides. Today we are actively discovering and bringing to market the next generation of crop-protection products using the power of biology. Using our high throughput platform and industry-leading genomic library, we are developing solutions from the vast dark matter of protein diversity nature has to offer.
Decline in global corn yield due to pests & pathogens
Decline in US honeybee population in 2019
Impact of one year of drought in US
WHY THIS MATTERS
NEW ANSWERS FOR NEW PROBLEMS
We’re delivering non-toxic crop-protection products from parts of protein diversity not yet explored to effectively ensure we can feed a growing population.
ADVANCING AN INDUSTRY
A shift from traditional agricultural science to solutions of tomorrow delivers greater crop resilience and productivity.
A GREENER FUTURE FOR FOOD
Sustainable biology-driven solutions reduce environmental impact and dependence on petroleum-based pesticides.
