LASER-ASSISTED SEED SELECTION<br />Proprietary Pioneer Technology to increase breeding accuracy and efficiency<br />The process<br /><ul><li>Seeds are oriented with magnetic paint for precise laser slicing
Sample collected for DNA analysis while maintaining seed viability
Seeds are transferred for storage and planting</li></ul>Benefits<br /><ul><li>Increase breeding accuracy
Discovering and developing the next generation crops requires multiple competencies<br /><ul><li>Technology intensive trait and breeding programs
Broad-based access to plant and microbial biodiversity
Capability to identify or generate novel traits
Wide area testing in multiple climatic zones and against evolving and diverse pests and weeds
Intellectual property strategies for trait and technology protection and for freedom-to-operate
Regulatory science and registration competencies across non-harmonized national systems
Consumer awareness and acceptance for GM traits</li></li></ul><li>Any statements made regarding regulatory approval and commercial distribution of new products are forward-looking statements based on current information and are subject to risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to, when and if such regulatory approval will occur, any conditions that may be imposed on such approval, costs and time of additional data that may be required in the approval process or changes in government laws or policies.
