We are at a crucial moment in history. The effects of climate change are undeniable, and agriculture is tied to more than 10% of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. alone. Farmers are of course inherently committed to conservation – after all, few businesses are as dependent on natural resources. But to sustainably address the changing environment while growing enough to keep up with a rapidly growing global population, farmers also need new technology and tools.
There is no silver bullet to solve the climate crisis. However, the recent confluence of major technological advances offers society a unique opportunity to take a major leap forward in improving the resilience and sustainability of our global food system.
This change starts with seed – seed that requires fewer natural resources while continuing to produce enough food and feed. The key is an approach called multiplex gene editing, a new and powerful breeding technique with the potential to meaningfully change how plants grow and have a nature-positive impact on the planet.
