Envision Future Plants
We maximize the potential of plants and contribute to sustainability in food and agriculture, and ultimately to make our society a better place.
GRA&GREEN is an R&D based AgriBio startup
that creates next generation food and agriculture.
There are various issues surrounding the food and agriculture field such as climate change, population growth, shortage of farmers and diversifying needs in food.
As a solution, we propose new crops and production methods by providing original grafting technologies, by combining the latest knowledge, such as gene-editing technology.
1. Joint Research and Provision of Technology
By using GRA&GREEN's novel grafting technology iPAG and unique gene-editing technology, the development of new seeds/seedlings can be realized at an overwhelmed accelerated speed.
We are offering collaborations and provisions of technology for custom seeds/seedlings development to all customers.
2. Plant Grafting System
One of our inventions, the Grafting Cassette is now commercially available.
Grafting is an agricultural technique that humans have used for a long time, however, efficient and stable production of grafted seedlings required craftsmanship and expertise.
By using Grafting Cassette , anyone can graft plants immediately.
Furthermore, using the specialized automatic grafting machine will allow saving man-power and cost.
