Agriculture and food production systems are unsustainable at present, contributing significantly to environmental degradation, pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Agriculture and food systems need to be transformed to meet sustainable development (eg. SDGs) and climate change challenges (e.g. Paris Agreement) over the next decades.

Our mission is to create super-legumes to provide sustainable source of healthy, nutritious plant proteins. We plan to do this by creating new super-legumes that will reduce carbon emission by more than 50%. Our products are non-GMO and consumer friendly.

Viridian Seeds aims to generate improved varieties of super-legumes which will transition agriculture and food production to a more sustainable future, while accelerating the dietary transition to plant based diets.


Taking a unique and powerful approach, Viridian Seeds uses its next generation allele discovery platform with AI for identification of novel traits and generation of new improved lines of legumes that have increased abiotic and biotic stress tolerances, a lower carbon footprint, higher yields, and improved nutritional characteristics.

We combine our skills in genetics, genomics, computational biology and environmental footprinting to develop legumes and other crops that are non-GMO to benefit farmers, consumers and the planet. Our allele discovery platform allows us to rapidly identify alleles and allele combinations for traits that will ensure food and nutritional security in the face of climate change.

Legumes with lower carbon footprints, higher yields, and improved nutritional characteristics

Genomics assisted computational trait improvement with AI workflows

Our long term vision is to transform agriculture and food systems to be climate-friendly, resilient and nutritious. Legumes are good for people and the planet!
