Bayer and Kaiima Collaborate to Develop Advanced Hybrid Rice Varieties
May 14 14
Bayer CropScience and Kaiima Bio-Agritech Ltd. entered into a collaboration to develop advanced hybrid rice varieties. The multi-year project combines Bayer's and Kaiima's expertise in breeding and technology in order to increase growers' productivity in important rice-cultivating countries. The goal of the collaboration is to focus on the breeding of new high-yielding hybrid rice varieties utilizing Bayer's elite rice germplasm and Kaiima's proprietary Enhanced Ploidy (EP) technology. Kaiima has been able to successfully harness the benefits of polyploidy by developing its breakthrough, non-GMO EP technology. When applied to high-impact food crops, EP significantly boosts plants' productivity. EP is based on the genome duplication phenomenon that occurs naturally in plants, and is considered as one of the most important evolutionary processes that plants use to adapt to stressful environmental changes.
