About Us

Using advanced machine vision technology and customized deep learning algorithms, Seed-X revolutionizes the entire seed breeding and production cycles.

 

Seed-X identifies genetic traits of seeds & crops based on their phenotype features and transforms this big data into a new market standard that is remodeling  the entire industry.

 

Bringing together global leading experts in advanced Al technology, computer vision and deep learning combined with our genetics, biomolecular and agronomics specialists, our team is our core asset.

 

Our Technology

Genetic Traits Detection Platform (GTDP)

Using advanced artificial intelligence, Seed-X’s technology detects the most important genetic traits from the seed phenotypical appearance.

 

With our unique machine vision technology and customized deep learning algorithms, we use the data gathered from the seed images to identify genetic traits related to the crop that is growing from each and every seed.

 

BREEDERS

The ability to detect genetic traits from the phenotypical appearance of a seed, such as: resistance to viruses, male infertility, fruit & grain color, size, quality traits, etc., allows us to:

  • Reduce breeding time
  • Increase the probability of achieving breeding targets
  • Shape breeding cycle from “The more you can do the greater chance of success”, to an informed plan
  • Reduce research cost

The ability to detect genetic purity allows us to generate IP protection. By examining each seed for misappropriation and keeping “Selfs” out of commercial seed bags.

PRODUCERS

Seed by Seed (SBS) sorting mechanism
We apply our proprietary “SBS” sorting mechanism to unveil hidden patterns that formerly could not be identified. We convert this data into new rating and selection criteria that allows identification of superior seeds.

The ability to detect genetic purity and germination probability together with our Seed by Seed (SBS) sorting mechanism creates a new standard in the market, enabling us to sort seeds for quality assurance.

Seed-X’s technology enables superior seeds by overcoming industry qualification standard hurdles.
