Our Blog

The global vision for 21st century farming is the development of a sustainable supply of healthy, diverse, and safe food for a growing global population – while limiting the impact on the environment and coping with climate change. To us, this is what the term, Sustainable Agriculture, means. It is the driving force of Cibus.
The goal of our blog is to follow and participate in this global debate and through our research and innovations to be a leading driver in the evolution of a global Sustainable Agriculture community.
