Be part of the legacy…

BISA is investing in innovative solutions to provide farmers with the technology to provide more food with less water, less land, and environmentally sustainable farming methods. Its facilities will cover biotechnology and double haploid facilities including state of the art labs, greenhouses, and nurseries to accelerate breeding gains and provide better products for those who need them the most. BISA will train scientists, researchers, and students in the latest advances in agricultural science.

BISA, established in the memory of Borlaug, will champion the cause of farmers in general and that of small and marginal farmers, in particular, to make the world hunger-free now and in the times to come. Join us to become part of the legacy.
