Edison Agrisciences

Edison is using biotechnology and predictive breeding to increase the levels of natural rubber already present in a low-input crop that growers and the ag industry already know: sunflower. Edison’s mission is to develop a domestic source of this strategic raw material, all $2 billion worth that is currently grown over 10,000 miles away and harvested manually from a tree species that’s highly susceptible to disease.
