Seed breeding platform technology to measure and predict plant traits.


Hi-Fidelity Genetics strives to democratize seed breeding in the face of climate change, reduce efficacy of traditional GMO breeding and improve the profitability for the farmer by providing non-GM solutions with similar yields at GMO but at a fraction of the cost.


Our investment in HFG was driven by the company’s desire to reduce seed costs and improve yields for the farmer by producing a non-GM seed solution with the same effectiveness as the more expensive GMO seeds. As climate change continues to impact regions in differing methods, Hi-Fidelity hopes to develop products that fit with each individual microclimate.
