Kaiima’s EP™ technology opens a new and exciting gateway for genetic improvement while maintaining the essence of high-value germplasm.
In addition to increasing yields, EP™ technology also strengthens the crops’ tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses and improves land and water-use efficiencies.
EP™ technology creates high-performing lines by inducing novel variations within the plant genome, using its own DNA, followed by proprietary selection methodologies.
Yield gains in the range of 10%.
Creation of novel diversity generates additional added-value characteristics and targeted outcomes.
Creates different types of genetic modifications than cannot be attained using mutagenesis.
Non-GMO classification allows for fast and cost-effective global deployment.
Efficient development timelines (one or more years reduction compared to classic breeding).
Cyclical genetic improvements without need for complimentary parent.
Compliments existing breeding programs.
