Better soybeans, now powered by Benson Hill.
Benson Hill Biosystems has acquired the assets of Schillinger, also known as eMerge, Genetics. We’re excited to combine two decades of soybean quality and yield improvement by the eMerge Genetics team with Benson Hill’s powerful data analytics and machine learning genomic platform CropOS™. Together, we will deliver the current and future portfolio of superior soybean varieties for human food and animal feed markets.
We’re changing the traditional commodity agriculture model. Over the years, soybeans have been bred primarily for yield, and nutritional content has suffered. We’ve changed the paradigm, offering high-performing, high quality soybean varieties for human food and animal feed. eMerge varieties deliver greater profitability for our customers and greater choice for consumers.
