DURHAM, North Carolina, USA, June 29, 2017 – Precision PlantSciences has signed on to a new initiative supported by the 2014 Farm Bill and run through the non-profit organization the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR).

“As a Founding Partner, Precision PlantSciences is particularly pleased to begin working with our fellow Crops of the Future Collaborative organizations,” said Fayaz Khazi, Ph.D., president of Precision PlantSciences. “Together, we will solve problems like how to pair new ideas with the most relevant technologies, and this will help us all create products that are not just better, but game changing — even life changing.”

This new consortium will focus on improving and leveraging participants’ shared understanding of valuable crop traits. Consortium members will work together to re-think novel possibilities in food and agriculture to meet global food demand not only today, but over the next 50 years.

Responding to questions about the initiative, Fayaz noted, “Through participation in the Crops of the Future Collaborative, Precision further solidifies its commitment to this community and to translating scientific knowledge into products that improve the health of our planet and all its inhabitants.”
