The work we do at Arcadia depends on crop libraries deep in genetic diversity. These are the assets used to underpin our discovery. They are the basis for new crop innovation and often become the commercial product itself:
Plants are complex living organisms influenced by their growing conditions, climate and production practices. Arcadia Biosciences has been focused on these variables and their effects on, crop quality and crop yields for more than 15 years. We understand the coming challenges of climate change and plant stress, and design crops optimized to perform in these conditions – repeatedly and consistently. Examples of these innovations include:
The focus of Arcadia’s crop improvement efforts has been to increase plants’ value for human nutrition and health. We see this as the logical next wave of the Norman Borlaug’s Green Revolution. Our confidence in our current pipeline of R&D projects comes from our historical successes, for example:
Arcadia’s innovations result in improved crops which are subject to divergent regulatory rules in important agricultural markets around the world. We have successfully navigated the complex environment of regulatory permits, processes and deregulating mechanisms for transgenic and conventional crops in markets regulated by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Health Canada (HC), Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the European Commission.
Trusted Innovation Partners
Arcadia is proud of our long-held reputation as a trusted scientific partner. Around the world, we partner with leading agricultural research organizations such as US National Institutes of Health, US-AID, USDA, AATF (African Agricultural Technology Foundation), Technion – Israeli Institute of Technology, Rothamsted Research, BRRI (Bangladesh Rice Research Institute), and CIAT (The International Center for Tropical Agriculture), in our efforts to bring crop productivity innovations that address the challenges of food quality, crop productivity and climate change. Additionally, long-established relationships with key agricultural universities like the University of California, Cornell University, University of Toronto, Ningxia Academy of Agriculture, and many others help accelerate Arcadia research.
