WITH POLLINATION, TIMING IS EVERYTHING
While product innovation and advanced farming practices have helped significantly, farming and crop pollination remain risky due to drought, flooding and climate change.
PowerPollen helped a customer recover a drought-affected field where the male and female plants matured at different rates; resulting in pollen being released before the female plant was ready. Using pollen we had already collected and preserved, PowerPollen was able to pollinate on-demand and fill the ears 3-times more than plants on the same field that did not receive pollen on-demand.
With increased flexibility, on-demand pollination technology can help reduce risk for corn growers and increase yield by 20 percent or more than today’s standard seed practices.
