FAST Corn Technology


FAST Corn - Functional Analysis System for Traits - allows researchers to grow corn to maturity in a fraction of the time required for traditional corn. Before FAST Corn, researchers were required to wait for a plant to reach full maturity before studying the affect of new traits.

Utilizing FAST Corn technology, Pioneer researchers can grow first generation corn plants to maturity in approximately two months, compared to more than 100 days in field conditions. And, if the first generation results are promising, a second generation can be planted in the greenhouse environment immediately, instead of waiting for the next year's growing season as would happen in field testing.
