How we are changing the world

  • Improving crop production and farm profitability
  • Improved biological nitrogen fixation saves farmers and the environment billions of dollars by negating the need for using energy-expensive and greenhouse gas-producing industrially synthesized fertilizers
  • Developing novel ways to control pests and diseases of grains and horticultural crops
  • Contributing to climate ready cereal cultivars
  • Improved post-harvest storage methods without the need for chemicals to control insects and microorganisms
  • Providing new alternatives to methyl bromide (a severe ozone depleting chemical) and sulfuryl fluoride (a greenhouse gas)
