Key Characteristics & Benefits
Legume production accounts for 22% of harvested area worldwide. Legumes are a protein source for more than 2 billion people in the world, with a global market upwards of $40 billion. This patent portfolio protects methods to increase the availability of fertilizers for vegetal growth and increase overall yield, resulting in a potential increase of leguminous plant production of 30%, compared to the use of standard bacteria.
The results are achieved by increasing the survival of Rhizobium bacteria, a nitrogen-fixing diazotroph, by means of genetic engineering, and by improving phosphate solubilization in plants. In testing, plants showed higher rates of nitrogen conversion to ammonia, ‘harrier’ roots (with an increase in secondary offshoots), and improved growth in adverse, salty soils and low phosphate conditions. This technology requires no modification of cultivation procedures, no use of fertilizers, and no additional costs for seed treatment or culture process.
