Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Nexgen Plants is a VC-backed start-up company developing a range of virus resistant plants covering food, fibre, energy and ornamental applications. An initial logo has been used prior to company formation but we are interested in exploring other designs.
The company is based in Brisbane Australia but will be engaging with multinational plant breeding and agri-biotech companies both in Australia and globally.
Nexgen Plant’s is currently engaging with a number of companies interested in conferring virus resistance to economically important row and vegetable crops. It is expected that this will expand to other crop types over time.
The Nexgen Technology is based on the disruption of the virus infection pathway within the plant itself, effectively stopping viruses from causing infection.
