Key Topics

Our goal in Key Topics is to provide background information and news on the two key areas being impacted by advances in gene editing in agriculture.

Productivity Traits: Productivity traits are a key basis of competition in the seed and trait business. Gene editing is ushering a new class of traits in seeds to manage agricultural sustainability and the impacts of climate change.

Renewable Low-Carbon Ingredients: Gene editing in plants and micro-organisms is a critically important technology in the global movement towards Net Carbon Zero Climate 2040 goals and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
