Singapore-based agri-genomics firm Singrow has launched a new, climate-resilient strawberry variety designed to be grown in tropical climates. The variety was developed using the company’s proprietary genomics technology platform.
Singrow Strawberries can be grown at scale in tropical countries, breaking seasonal and temperature barriers and unlocking huge potential for growers while also reducing costs for consumers. It uses advanced genomics technology that leverages deep understanding of plant genomes to improve crop nutrition and yield with varieties that are also disease and climate-resilient.
The firm has started work on producing new crop varieties via the same technology and is working on expanding the list of produce to other crop segments such as rice, corn, sustainable palm oil and other staple vegetables.
