Blade provides you a single access point to advances made by Ceres, as well as some
of the world’s most respected names in crop science.
The joint research partnership between Ceres and the world’s top perennial grass
institution is bringing higher yielding switchgrass varieties to market faster than
anyone predicted. In addition to their advanced breeding lines and complementary
gene-marker technology, the Noble Foundation is helping develop agronomic systems
and best management practices aimed at optimizing productivity.
Northern latitudes present unique challenges to switchgrass production, and we are
working with experienced researchers at SDSU to develop proprietary higher-yielding,
winter-hardy cultivars for the Northern Range.
Ceres’ long-term collaboration with Texas AgriLife Research, The Texas AM University
System, provides our product developers with exclusive access to one of the world’s
leading research programs in high-biomass sorghum — not to mention elite breeding
lines years ahead of anyone else. Working together, we are commercializing new hybrids
with advanced traits and unrivaled performance.

Blade has established the largest trial network of energy grasses in the U.S. Complementing our own efforts,
we have trials with a growing list of top agricultural universities:
Ceres is a leader in energy crop development. Its pipeline of seeds and traits is
supported by marker-assisted breeding, biotechnology and other genomics-based technologies.
Ceres has identified over 1,000 genes that affect plant biomass, and holds one of
the world’s largest collections of fully sequenced plant genes.
