In 2005 the company was equipped with a research center aimed at grain quality improvement, productivity maximization and developement of resistance to biotic and abiotic diseases.

The lab is equipped with precision sowing machines, hullers, dryers and all kinds of tools to perform breeding and plant analysis

The most important moment of the research happens in the fields. It is the selection of carachteristics obtained through the breeding process.

Research is articulated in the following moments:

Parental growing (and germoplasm manatainance for biodiveristy)
Breeding of two parents
• Manual selection in the fields
• Detailed analysis of quality

The final product is a new rice variety with desired seleceted features. The plants then obtain genetic stability through a long period of growing cycles (usually six to seven years) to obtain a pure line of the species.
