Ceres and Texas A&M develop sorghum for biomass Academic Article uri icon


  • Ceres Inc. has started a joint commercialization effort with Texas A&M University in creating high-biomass sorghum of which is widely grown in warmer climates for food. Sorghum is also drought-tolerant and can thrive in places that do not support corn and other food crops. The company believes its resources for high-throughput trait development capabilities will speed up the rate of improving biomass yields substantially. Ceres company will have exclusive commercialization rights to the high-biomass hybrids developed at Texas A&M.
