■ Background of this matter:
The food, agriculture, forestry and fisheries industries are facing various problems such as global warming and the resulting increase in abnormal weather. In order to respond to changes in the surrounding environment and achieve sustainable development, it is essential to have the technology to quickly and sustainably create epoch-making new varieties with new added value. In order to develop seedlings more quickly, we have been working on the development of new breeding technology. We also provide technology provision services that utilize our proprietary genome editing technology (Gene App(TM) and 3GE(TM)). In Aichi Prefecture, we will strengthen the joint research system that utilizes the technologies, fields, and know-how of the Aichi Prefectural Agricultural Experiment Station (hereinafter referred to as the “Agricultural Research Institute”) and universities, as well as new ideas and technologies of startups, and promote new agricultural innovations. Since 2021, we have been promoting the Aichi Agricultural Innovation Project, which we are working to create.
