Ceres Inc is an agricultural biotechnology company. The Company is engaged in developing and marketing of seeds and traits to produce crops for feed, forages, sugar and other markets.

Ceres Inc was incorporated in the State of Delaware in March 1996. It is an agricultural biotechnology company, selling seeds to produce renewable biomass feedstocks that enable the replacement of petroleum and other fossil fuels. It uses a combination of advanced plant breeding and biotechnology to develop new crops, known as dedicated energy crops, that it believes will address the limitations of first-generation bioenergy feedstocks, such as corn and sugarcane, increase biomass productivity, reduce crop inputs and improve cultivation on marginal land. Its first commercial products are proprietary sweet sorghum varieties that can be used as a drop-in feedstock to extend the operating season of Brazilian sugarcane-to-ethanol mills, the operating days of which are limited due to the inherent limitations of sugarcane physiology and growth patterns. Its dedicated energy crops can also be used for the production of second-generation biofuels and bio-based chemicals, including cellulosic ethanol, butanol, jet fuel, diesel-like molecules and gasoline-like molecules, from non-food biomass. As of November 15, 2013, the Company owned or had exclusive licensed rights to approximately 85 issued patents. Federal, state and local laws and regulations govern the use, manufacture, storage, handling and disposal of these materials.
