The genetic potential of crops has risen due to advances in agricultural inputs and farming practices but plant stresses such as heat, drought and salinity still limit crop yields worldwide. Crop enhancement technology mitigates these effects.
What is crop enhancement?

Closing the yield gap: taking crop enhancement to new markets

Our Annual Report 2016 is available to view and download now

Introducing Fortalis®

We're introducing Fortalis® to soybean growers in the USA and Argentina.  This new yield improving foliar spray is our first product using the second generation of our CaT technology.

 

Key crops: soybean stats

Small beans, big numbers.

Why are soybeans such a big deal in Brazil, the USA and Argentina (among many more countries worldwide)?

  • Protein power - these little beans contain lots of protein
  • Global crop - they are grown on 121m hectares of land globally
  • Multi-uses - we eat them and they can even provide fuel but most of them feed the world's cows, pigs and chickens
Products and crops: global map

Plant impact is developing a complete portfolio of crop enhancement products for the world’s most important agricultural crops.

Dr Amarjit Basra continues in his role as our guest editor on LinkedIn with an article discussing wheat and what needs to happen if we are to find a way to realize the potential of every seed.

In the article he says "This is the last of my October guest editorials for Plant Impact (www.plantimpact.com)  so I thought I’d broaden my topic a little. So far, I’ve discussed changes in our industry, crop enhancement and collaborative innovation. Today my subject is another important area of research with yield improving potential that I believe will play a key role in an effective and integrated approach to crop production in the future (alongside crop enhancement): roots.

While the contribution of canopy size to yield is now well understood, we don’t know how yield is affected or limited by the root system. I’ve always been fascinated by plant root biology and believe that future crops will have to deliver top yield performance, which will depend in part on optimizing their root system architecture (RSA) and functionality...

Dr Amarjit Basra continues in his role as our guest editor on LinkedIn with an article discussing wheat and what needs to happen if we are to find a way to realize the potential of every seed.

In the article he says "...The rate of wheat yield progress will depend on innovations to: (i) prolong the crop’s yield-forming period, (ii) optimize its water and nutrient use efficiency, (iii) mitigate the effects of heat stress, (iv) improve its photosynthetic efficiency and carbon allocation and (v) protect yield-formation from disease, pest and weed pressure. However, yields could actually decline if the rate of evolution of resistant pests, pathogens and weeds outstrips the rate of introduction of new genetic, agronomic and chemical technologies."
