Patent Issued for Drought Tolerant Technology
Tuesday, 2013/08/27 | 08:01:07

Arcadia Biosciences, Inc., a U.S.-based agricultural technology company, announced that a key patent for its Drought Tolerance technology has been issued by the State Intellectual Property Office of China. The technology which enables plants to produce high yields using significantly less fresh water has proven to be effective under field trials with several major crops, including rice, cotton, canola, and groundnuts.

 

"Fresh water is a constraining resource for agriculture throughout the world, including China. This constraint is present during normal weather patterns, and exacerbated during times of climate instability. Our Drought Tolerance technology has the potential to help relieve some of this pressure in times of drought and at the same time free up critical fresh water resources for human consumption," said Eric Rey, president and CEO of Arcadia.

 

The platform technology was invented by Drs. Shimon and Amira Gepstein at The Technion Israel Institute of Technology and Dr. Eduardo Blumwald at the University of California, Davis, and licensed exclusively to Arcadia.
