Developing plant seeds as quality feedstock for eco-conscious manufacturers of oil-based products


We are developing oilseeds for farmers to increase profits and ecosystem health. 

We achieve this by using state of the art technologies in plant science including gene editing, metabolic modeling, and precision agriculture.

All while ensuring a reliable supply chain connecting farmers to jet fuel consumers and livestock producers.

How Pennycress Will Change Modern Agriculture

The Possibilities Are Endless


Pennycress is an overwintering biofuel cover crop with ecosystem services.

Planted in temperate agro-ecosystems in the fall after cash crops such as corn and soybeans are harvested, Pennycress survives overwinter, flowers in the spring and is harvested in the early summer before the next round of corn and soybeans is planted. After harvest, pennycress seed is then sold to animal feed operations or to biorefineries and subsequently to airlines, providing farmers extra income during a time in the year when many fields are empty.

Pennycress has numerous  ecosystem services, allowing us to sustain agriculture and clean up the planet. 
See below for how pennycress fights climate change, increases biodiversity, improves soil health, and more.
