About Metagen

Australian Agricultural Biotechnology

Metagen is an Australian owned biotechnology business focused on helping Australian growers optimise crop productivity and profitability.  

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

We are a business that values both innovation and sustainability – and at all times look to optimise and tap into the natural efficiencies an, powerful processes of nature.  

We  understand the pressure on growers and partner to help growers achieve better results. We believe there are smarter ways to farm and are committed to achieving new productivity gains.

Science is showing us how.

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.
