SUPREME SEED. BIGGER YIELDS . 

INNOVATIVE GENETICS

We understand the key to superior genetics, from maximizing performance of the seed to achieving bigger and optimal yields.

Frontier Agri-Science
A quick overview...

Frontier Agri-Science Inc.

We focus on understanding and optimizing plant genetics to uncover and reveal novel traits for the next-generation of non-GMO crops to be used in global agriculture.

FROM OUR NETWORK

Important Milestones
  • We have been convinced by the high quality of Frontier research at a time where biotech companies are more technologically driven than based on understanding fundamental biology.
  • Frontier is working in collaboration with BASF’s crop protection division on several projects using platform technologies to find new genetics that are of commercial interest of both parties.
    BASFCorporate
  • Frontier was profiled late last year by Lux Research, an independent research and advisory firm, providing strategic advice and ongoing intelligence on emerging technologies.

OUR TEAM

 

Our team has over 140 peer-reviewed publications in plant genetics with 23 of those in the world’s top journals Nature, Science, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  This has culminated in >10,000 citations, which is a testament to the incredible influence and novelty of our research.

FOUR KEY AREAS OF RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Plant Vigor

We believe that by focusing on improvement in the molecular (kinetic) mechanisms of photosynthesis and cellulose biosynthesis we’ll enhance, not only growth, but overall plant health.

Disease

For the moment our goal is to improve the resistance to Fusarium head blight (FHB) in Durum wheat.  Our approach is forward genetic screens using not-so-classical mutagenesis.

Herbicides

We’re primary focussed on discovering novel herbicide tolerant mechanisms for several different chemistries of well known herbicidal classes.   Our research in this field has resulted in some surprising findings with applications in global commercial markets.

Water

Frontier’s very first discovery was an allele that lead to a 50% increase in water-use-efficiency. We’ve since developed a highly sophisticated non-GMO forward chemical genetics screen (first tested in durum wheat) to identify new varieties in various crops
