GFC Green Fields Capital Ltd is an Israel-based company, engaged in developing plant traits for the agriculture and biofuel industries, using microRNAs genes. The Company specializes in the identification and use of microRNAs genes that function as ‘main bio-switches’ to control processes in crops, such as corn, wheat, rice, soybean, cotton, canola, and algae. It focuses primarily on developing crops with improved traits for agriculture, such as improved tolerance to environmental stress, improved fertilizer use efficiency, increased yield, improved disease resistance, and increased biofuel productivity. The Company also develops plants with biofuel-related traits, such as castor bean, jatropha, soybean, corn, and sorghum; and algae for the production of bio-ethanol and biodiesel. In addition, it uses microRNA discovery and profiling technologies to identify molecules that are used in marker assisted breeding of crops and traits.
