TerViva is commercializing climate-resilient pongamia trees. The pongamia is a hardy legume tree that produces an annual crop of beans with up to 10 times the yield of soy, for over 25 years. TerViva is increasing the global supply of plant protein and vegetable oil while restoring degraded agricultural land. TerViva will work with Dr. Allison Miller of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center to develop stress-resistant rootstocks, thereby expanding environments in which pongamia can be a viable high-yielding crop.
