Unlocking the full potential of seed.
Our technology can transform any crop in any geography. The possibilities are endless. So to achieve the greatest sustainable positive impact, Inari is starting with the crops that have the largest footprint. Corn and soybeans cover more than 300 million acres across North and South America. But this is just the start.

It’s not about what we can do – it’s about what needs to be done. We collaborate with stakeholders to best understand the challenges facing farmers, society and the planet. Once we have identified a problem, we locate its source in the genetic code of the crop and solve it within the seed. If we don’t have the tools for the job, we get them… or we build them ourselves.
Our process begins by harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence to gain a true understanding of the complexities of nature. From sequence to phenotype to field performance – our world-class data science and software engineering teams power a proprietary genetic design platform applicable to any trait, crop or geography.
Inari is a pioneer in the field of multiplex gene editing – pushing the limits of what is possible. From standard on/off editing to more unique regulations of gene expression and proprietary replacement editing, our unrivalled capability lets us mix and match tools for multiple changes within a single plant to reveal the full potential of every seed.
By understanding and harnessing the complexity and diversity of nature, we create revolutionary seed that reduces the footprint of agriculture while increasing production. In soybeans, we’re significantly improving yield to enable farmers to produce equal outputs with less land. In corn, we’re notably reducing the need for nitrogen to help limit runoff. All this in less time at lower cost – bringing breakthrough technology to farmers without breaking the bank. By driving value throughout the supply chain we build a foundation for a new food system.
Well-defined commercial strategy
Inari’s go-to-market strategy is unique in scale and simplicity, taking an asset light, high-margin, customer centric approach. Through our West Lafayette, IN based Seed Architects™ we partner with leaders from across the agriculture industry who know what it takes to get seed in the soil with Independent Seed Companies to help grow their businesses and build stronger connections with farmers.
Our people are our ignition
We leverage a unique mix of disciplines and people, combining deep experience within our own sector with high level expertise from across science and technology to exponentially expand our capacity for innovation. All this is guided by a Scientific Strategy Board made up of the greatest minds of our time, who actively challenge us to push boundaries, challenge the norm and strive for industry-leading exploration.
