Corteva Agriscience has announced a strategic research and development collaboration with ZeaKal. ZeaKal developed proprietary PhotoSeed technology, which is a novel mechanism for increasing the photosynthetic capacity of a plant. These plants can harvest more sunlight and fix more carbon dioxide, which can boost yield. Oil and protein content can also be influenced. With this agreement, Corteva takes a minority equity stake in ZeaKal.
