Chromatin is focused on sorghum — a high-yielding, nutrient-efficient, and drought tolerant crop that is vital to meeting the world’s growing demand for sustainable agricultural systems and can be cultivated on over 80% of the world’s agricultural land. We are tapping the tremendous natural biodiversity of sorghum to create new seed products that use resources efficiently and grow on marginal land. Our products are enabling farmers worldwide to produce crops optimized for traditional agriculture or for bio-industrial processes that create renewable chemicals, materials and fuels.
