 Power Pollen logo PowerPollen, LLC is transforming how plants cross-pollinate.

Commercialization in corn will generate significant revenues in 2018.  PowerPollenSM technology will enable hybridity in crops like wheat, which is a key to ensuring future global food security and improving farmer profits.
