Inari Agriculture

From nature's diversity to better seeds

Everyone always asks how do we grow more food? A better question is: how do we grow food without starving the planet? At Inari, we are looking at nature's diversity to find the solutions.

The way farmers grow food today is not sustainable. Agriculture’s footprint puts enormous strain on precious ecosystems and depletes increasingly scarce resources. Climate change is accelerating this unsustainable trend. Inari is unlocking nature’s potential to create innovations that fundamentally change the way food is grown. Its seeds enable farmers to produce healthier crops, using radically less land, with a much lower impact on the environment.
