Our Trait Pipeline
Ceres uses a combination of biotechnology, advanced plant breeding and genomic technologies to create high value traits and seeds. These technologies have broad applications across multiple crops, including sorghum, sugarcane, corn and rice, among others.
Our trait pipeline includes genes that have been shown to substantially increase sugar levels or biomass growth per plant as well as genes that increase grain yields. We have genes that allow plants to use fertilizer and water more efficiently. We also have genes that have been shown to provide tolerance and enhanced recovery to both acute and prolonged stress, such as drought.
