Solynta develops new technologies in F1 hybrid potato breeding aimed at the improvement of all steps in the potato chain. Focused on benefits for all stakeholders, Solynta performs research aimed to develop new techniques, knowledge and half materials that are IP protected.
The Solynta F1 hybrid breeding technology is based on the development of homozygous elite lines that are crossed to generate an F1 hybrid cultivar. The performance of the parent is gradually improved by crossing and selection and experimental F1 hybrids are field tested to evaluate their performance and commercialise the best products.
Solynta is a for profit company that acquires revenues from financed research, providing services and consultancies, licensing out of patents and release of advanced materials.
