  • Company Description What makes us unique is that we are able to grow on underproductive, diseased and mined lands and not compete with the food source. Our technology platform is based on proprietary advancements in agronomy and molecular genetics (not GMO). Our crop pongamia pinnata is a tree that produces 8x higher yield than soybeans per acre. It is being primarily deployed in the Florida citrus community, which has been hit hard by a new disease and economic pressure.
