We are 3PaTec (Three-parent breeding technology for plants of the future). We capitalize on our game changing discovery that exploits the fusion of an egg with sperm from two different fathers yielding viable triparental plant offspring. Additionally, three-parent crosses can bypass a hybridization barrier of the seed opening the way for exploiting beneficial traits of previously incompatible climate-adapted wild species while reducing time to market. Our technology can lead to a new plant breeding strategy with economic benefits expected to positively affect the social welfare of farmers as well as upstream and downstream industries related to the agricultural value chain.
