Non-GMO herbicide-resistant crops developed with process used ‘since the beginnings of agriculture’

trang trai sach o uc

Kaiima Bio Agritech works on boosting crop performance by using the plant’s own DNA, without the need of introducing external genes. In order to leverage this technology, the company has partnered with the giant chemical company BASF to discover new herbicide resistance traits and develop new methods for weed control that could improve crop productivity.

Kaiima’s enhanced ploidy technology can increase the number of copies of the plant’s genome, therefore increasing the number of copies of each gene and allowing for more genetic diversity within the cultivated species.
