Making agriculture sustainable by unlocking plant genetics

Phytoform unlocks the power of plant genetics to make the agricultural industry sustainable. They have developed a crop improvement platform combining novel artificial intelligence and genome editing technologies. Their platform can efficiently and rapidly develop new plant traits, implementing them into crop varieties with minimal genomic changes. Phytoform is delivering traits with partners to reduce waste in the tomato and potato supply chains. By reducing waste, they are significantly decreasing inputs and emissions. They are also developing alternative crops to increase the diversity and robustness of the food system.
