As both a safe and effective means of helping plants adapt to their unique local environment, plant breeding is a cornerstone of sustainable agriculture.
Ongoing advancements in plant breeding technologies are unearthing new avenues for farming to steward innovative solutions that help farmers use fewer resources—such as water and land—while also producing enough to feed a growing world. Together, these benefits are working to improve lives on farms and in communities around the world.
In addition to being safe, plant breeding is essential in helping farmers nourish a growing global population while also caring for our planet. Discover how we breed plants for resilient crops.
