We believe advancing agriculture is an essential step in solving the world’s greatest challenges. The global population is booming, diets are shifting and urbanization is rising. Never has so much been asked of agriculture to meet the needs of our society. Never have the external risks to agricultural advancement been greater, whether from a changing climate and limited natural resources or from industry consolidation and reduced choice in the marketplace. New innovation and new innovators are needed to advance agriculture for people and our planet. The emerging era of Cloud Biology will enable innovation in agriculture throughout the value chain. Major advancements in the analytics of big data through cloud computing have revolutionized industries. At Benson Hill Biosystems, we bring that revolution to plant genomics. We combine the power of these technologies with deep biological expertise to empower organizations of all sizes to advance products to market faster and to tackle the greatest challenges in crop development.
