Maize is one of the world’s most widely cultivated crops with future demands projected to increase. At the same time, maize cultivation is facing increasing weather-related risk due to more frequent and extreme weather patterns that directly affect crop productivity. Using precision genetic engineering techniques, we have developed an environmentally resilient, commercially relevant maize crop. These short stature hybrids have demonstrated substantially better standability, especially under severe weather events, resulting in reduced yield loss, prevention of revenue loss and reduction of the overall carbon footprint of maize production.
