About Metagen

Australian Agricultural Biotechnology

Metagen is an Australian owned biotechnology business that works with Australian growers to optimise crop productivity and profitability.  

We use advanced microbial technology and our metagenomic laboratory offers a new generation in agricultural analytics.

Metagen is focused on producing new improved formulations using the latest research and innovation. We value sustainable solutions that lift productivity and have a high focus on improving crop health through new mechanisms for disease management.  Our technology at all times looks to optimise and tap into the natural efficiencies and powerful processes of nature.  

We understand the pressure on growers and research is conducted in paddock, closely with growers.  Scientific breakthroughs are showing us there are smarter ways to farm that are bringing new gains in productivity.

Metagen is committed to innovative scientific approaches for improved sustainability and productivity.

Metagen has three focus areas:

We provide metagenomic technology services to agronomists, growers and Universities.


Our business is grower driven. We work in close partnership and some of Australia’s largest growers participate in our research. Our research direction is driven by our growers needs and they form part of the  direction of our business.

We believe research needs to have closer links to agronomy. We link our laboratory to what is happening in the paddock and the paddock data back to the lab.  We partner closely to ensure we continue to provide growers with the latest science based solutions.
