Cibus and Rotam Trait Development Company announced that they have developed
two new critical traits for rice which will help provide tolerance to two
separate classes of herbicides. According to Cibus, each trait has the
promise to increase crop yields and quality for farmers and reduce harmful
environmental impacts.

According to Peter Beetham, chief executive officer of Cibus, these advances
in rice were done using precision gene editing. He added that they are
working on other beneficial traits for rice in the coming years, such as
disease resistance, to help farmers improve the efficiency of their land and
feed the world's growing population.
