The first OlsAro solution:
A salt tolerant wheat

OlsAros salt tolerant wheat germinates and grows well in saline soil and gives good yield. These properties can be adapted to different climate zones.

By taking advantage of OlsAro ́s wheat, saline land that normally is unfarmed during dry season (e.g. in Bangladesh) could be utilized, adding one more crop season to the farmers. This can provide local farmes with increased incomes, contribute to local community as well as strenthening domestic food supply. In addition, it also re-utilize land in the drive for more sustainable agriculture.

- an essential grain food source for human consumption

Wheat is together with maize and rice, the world’s most important crop, with a harvest of ca 760 million metric tons during 2020 ( Wheat production covers more than 240 million hectares (ha) globally.

OlsAro is offering a solution in a growing demand for food in a world with an increasing population and decreasing arable land due to climate change, bad management, and urbanization.
