A field of corn is one of the most complex systems in Nature. Individual plants are constantly sensing the environment and adjusting how to use the water and nutrients in the soil. Building on breakthrough discoveries in chemistry and plant science, we are developing products to enable crops to yield more when conditions are good, and to better survive tough weather.

Asilomar started in 2013 with a radical idea: that we could use chemistry to ‘rewire’ how plants work at the molecular level, leading to a better bottom line on the farm. With some hard work and a little luck, we have built a pipeline of promising technology that performs in the field. We are working to bring these ideas to farmers with a dedicated team and fantastic partners.
