The first OlsAro solution: A salt tolerant wheat

OlsAros salt tolerant wheat germinates and grows well in saline soil and gives good yield. These properties can be adapted to different climate zones.

By taking advantage of OlsAro ́s wheat, saline land that normally is fallow because of a dry season (e.g. in Bangladesh) could be utilized, adding one more crop season to the farmers. This is of economic advantage in the whole chain from farm to fork. In addition, it also re-utilize land in the drive for more sustainable agriculture.

      This is exactly the kind of innovation we need for climate change! OlsAro's salt tolerant wheat means more crops on less land and higher yields in harsh conditions.

              Interesting. The Northern Rivers region, including areas around Lismore in New South Wales, typically receives higher rainfall compared to arid regions where dry farming is more common. However, there are still farms in the Lismore area that employ water-efficient farming techniques, though they may not strictly adhere to traditional dry farming methods. These farms often utilize practices such as drip irrigation, rainwater harvesting, and mulching to conserve water and optimize crop production. The specific results of farming in the Lismore area would depend on factors like soil type, crop selection, and the implementation of sustainable farming practices.

                  In early January 2008, parts of Kyogle were subject to major flooding, when the Richmond River burst its banks after heavy rainfall around Kyogle and upstream, reaching heights of 18.1 metres (59 ft). This was the second worst flood in Kyogle on record, after the flood of 1954. Vampiers beware… https://farmingtogether.com.au/our-work/community-map/kyogle-garlic-growers-group/

                    GMO — like tomatoes without flavour, what are the long term ramifications if any, what revenue has the main focus and is the groundbreaking tech. literal? Scrumptious initiative.
