FuturaGene Enters Agreement with Danforth Center to Provide Plant Yield-Enhancing Technology to Developing Countries
May 30 13
FuturaGene has entered into an agreement with the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, which will see FuturaGene’s plant yield-enhancing technology tested on staple crops grown by farmers in Asia, Africa and Brazil. Yield enhancement technology will be tested first on model plants and if successful, the technology will be transferred to specific food crops. The aim is to provide increased food security to small and subsistence farmers, particularly in arid and semi-arid parts of these geographies. Specifically, the Danforth Center’s modifications using FuturaGene´s technology will seek to increase plant biomass levels and make crops more valuable as feed for animals.
