WHAT WE DO

CREATING BIOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS FOR BIOLOGICAL PROBLEMS

We develop and deliver innovative biotechnology to smallholder farmers. Striga, a weed that affects nearly 40 million farms in sub-Saharan Africa, can completely ruin a farmer’s harvest. By selecting for specific strains of the fungus FOXY, farmers can use our biological solutions, instead of chemical herbicides. When crop yields increase, farmers are able to feed their families better and improve their lives.
