Yielding the Future - Innovating a Sustainable Path for a Better Future
In a world challenged by growing population, diminishing resources and climate change, FuturaGene’s technologies address critical challenges of plant yield enhancement and yield protection. We harness biotechnology to ensure the security and sustainability of Fiber, Fuel, and Feed. We believe that the key to sustainable agriculture lies in continuous improvement and protection of yield and processability of crops, thus maximizing output, whilst minimizing all inputs such as land, water and fertilizer.
After developing as an independent company since its inception in 1993, FuturaGene was acquired, in July 2010 by Suzano Papel e Celulose S.A., a Brazilian company. Suzano is the second largest producer of eucalyptus pulp in the world and is developing into one of the largest global suppliers of renewable energy in the form of wood pellet for electricity generation. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Suzano, FuturaGene will continue its worldwide biotech activities with enhanced resources driving its mission to be a world leader in plant genetic research and development for global biofuel, forestry and agricultural markets.
