The Two Blades Foundation supports the development of durable disease resistances in crop plants and their deployment in agriculture
Incorporated in 2004, the Two Blades Foundation (2Blades) is a US based charitable organization that supports programs of research and development on durable disease resistance. Where research identifies ways of breeding for lasting resistance, 2Blades will seek to promote their deployment in practical programs of crop improvement. Our aim is to support the use of safe, environmentally-benign and sustainable strategies for crop production so as to provide long-term protection from crop losses due to plant disease.
2Blades recognises that there is an especially urgent need for the development of disease resistant crops in less developed and subsistence agricultures and consequently this is a major focus of our activity. In such cases, the Foundation will distribute its technologies at no cost through appropriate national and international agencies or through local seed companies.
