What We Do
Nexion Biosciences develops innovative crop solutions that enable growers to maximize their available resources.
Nexion's products are geared to solve problems that plague farmers and growers worldwide. The genetic enhancement of plant seeds is the most viable way that crops can be grown on a large commercial scale with minimal use of pesticides and herbicides. Nexion's technology is applied directly within the seed's DNA code prior to its planting.
In addition to aiding in the prevention of crop loss, other benefits of our technology include significant reduction in the use of pesticides and herbicides, reduced land amounts needed for growing crops, reduced greenhouse emissions and conservation of topsoil. In turn, these reductions translate to substantial profits.
Nexion Biosciences has executed a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with The United States Department of Agriculture – Agriculture Research Service to develop maize inbred varieties with resistance to pre-harvest aflatoxin contamination.
