The J.R. Simplot Company Announces Innate™ All-Native Plant Technology

BOISE, Idaho, July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The J. R. Simplot Company's Plant Sciences business announces Innate™ Technology, the all-native biotechnology platform for improving crops, leading to new, better and healthier foods.


Innate™ Technology is a patented plant biotechnology process that works with a plant's own genes to enhance desirable traits and to decrease less desirable traits. Traditional plant breeding is a random method for crossing genetics with unpredictable results.  Innate™ Technology precisely targets particular traits without introducing foreign DNA.

Simplot's first application of Innate™ Technology involves improved potato varieties, which differ from their conventional counterparts in three ways:  1) reduced black-spot bruising; 2) reduced degradation of starch to sugars during storage; and 3) reduced asparagine levels. These traits are beneficial to consumers and to the potato industry.

Simplot's first application of Innate™ Technology has been submitted to the USDA for regulatory review.
