Hi-Fidelity Genetics is a seed breeding technology platform.


Hi-Fidelity Genetics strives to democratize seed breeding in the face of climate change and reduced efficacy of traditional GMO breeding, and to improve farmer profitability by providing non-GM solutions with yields similar to their GMO counterparts 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 more expensive GMO seeds. As climate change continues to impact traditional growing seasons, Hi-Fidelity hopes to develop products that fit within each individual microclimate.
