Improving Crop Yield and Stress Resilience


The Augmenting the Plant Microbiome to Improve Crop Yield and Stress Resilience (PLM) project aimed to develop breakthrough microbial products that can colonize crop hosts and substantially improve seed germination, yield, and drought-and heat-stress resilience. The products have been successfully tested in over 20 genotypes of wheat, barley, canola, and pulses – crops that account for more than $15 billion in annual production in Canada alone.
