A Universal Genetic Switch for Increasing Plant Yields, Stress Tolerance and Perishable Product Shelf Life

Food waste is a significant problem globally and contributes to huge agricultural losses. Roughly one-third of all food is wasted: 1.3 billion tons per year. It is no surprise that the UN has a Sustainable Development Goal of cutting food waste in half by 2030.

Agribody Technologies Inc. contributes to food security and agricultural resilience, helping to deal with growing populations, extreme weather and decreasing farmland by significantly increasing crop yields and extending shelf life of perishable products.

At the  7th Plant Genomics & Gene Editing Congress: USA, CEO Jerry Feitelson presented their patented technology which downregulates the DHS gene in plant seeds, leading to increased yield, stress resistance and shelf-life. Click below to view the slides from his presentation.
