"How do you pronounce 'guayule?'"
We hear that question nearly every day, usually followed by "So, you make tires and balloons and hoses from that...(bad attempt at pronunciation)... rubber?"
At PanAridus, we make seeds—and those seeds grow into guayule bushes—and eventually into the products made with natural rubber.
But first come the seeds.
PanAridus has the largest number of privately owned guayule strains in the world. Combining the bio-sciences of genetics and selective breeding, we've unlocked the key to growing a higher yield of domestically grown guayule rubber per acre than from imported Hevea rubber--and even more inexpensively than synthetic rubber, which is made from petroleum.
Our advanced seed varieties ensure a supply of guayule rubber for applications (like tires), and our agronomic techniques give farmers a more certain and profitable crop.
By expanding our fields under cultivation and by using our extensive research to make this drought tolerant plant profitable for farmers to grow in arid regions around the globe, we can meet the need for this critical commodity in a sustainable way. That's why we've assimilated leading experts and professionals at our Casa Grande, Arizona research and test facility, partnered with others to provide research, implemented these farming methods and techniques in pilot projects and produced advanced phenotypes for global applications.
PanAridus: It's how you say guayule.
