Bayer Crop Science -- Grants4Ag: Enabling technologies for plant transformation

Worldwide demand for food, feed, and fuel is on the rise and will continue to increase significantly over the next several decades. The population is expected to reach almost ten billion people by 2030 and securing sufficient supply of quality food in an efficient and responsible way is critical. Bayer Crop Science is committed to ensure access to healthy, diverse, and safe food for a growing global population.

Plant transformation is a key step in introducing novel traits that can improve our ability to provide sustainable food sources, particularly in row crops. Introducing new traits and gene-editing technology adds complexity to the transformation system and requires extensive research and innovation. We are looking to collaborate and support innovative scientists that can help us feed a growing planet.

The intent of this project is to enable research towards developing new plant transformation technologies for row crops, particularly monocots.
