Imagine a farm full of stalks, as far as the eye can seed. That joke may be corny but the dream isn’t. As beef consumption increases worldwide, so too does the demand for corn that comprises cows’ feed. Founded in 2008, Sempre Sementes sells corn seeds and licenses the technology behind its genetically modified corn seeds that provide a 10% higher yield than international giants like Monsanto and Syngenta. It also prepares corn seeds on behalf of large multinationals. This process, termed industrialization, includes removing the straw from the cob, drying it, threshing it, and cleaning it.
