Down regulation of UPL3 leads to increases in seed yield and seed protein and lipid content. Single homologues have now been identified as gene editing targets in monocot crops (maize, wheat, rice and barley) and also cotton. Further analysis of elite oil seed rape germplasm shows that there is still potential to increase yields through down regulation of UPL3.
