In Israel, Evogene announced the signing of a collaboration agreement between its wholly-owned subsidiary Evofuel Ltd. and Insolo Agroindustrial S.A., for the selection and optimization of Evofuel’s proprietary castor bean varieties in Insolo farms located in Piaui state in northeast Brazil.

The two-year collaboration between the two companies will examine the suitability and adaptability of growing Evofuel’s castor varieties as a second crop solution for Insolo farms located in one of the fastest developing agricultural regions in Brazil – the Cerrado. In the framework of the collaboration, the two companies will jointly evaluate the economic and agronomic benefits of growing Evofuel’s castor seed varieties in this area, selecting the best performing varieties, and developing the agronomic know-how to integrate castor into Insolo’s production system.
