Epicrop Technologies is a new company located in Lincoln, Nebraska. The initial patent-pending discoveries in epigenetic technologies were made by Dr. Sally Mackenzie at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Our epigenetic breeding methods improve plant yields and stress tolerances and are applicable to all plant species. Of particular interest are the important corn, soybean, and wheat crops grown here in Nebraska.
Most importantly, we use this natural biological process to breed crops that produce higher yields and are more stress tolerant. Higher yields help protect the environment: by requiring less land for sufficient production; by keeping crop prices lower, which reduces the incentive to put conserved land into production; and by irrigating fewer acres to achieve the same total production.Go to website
