Discovering New Solutions for Crop Health


About 5Metis

Headquartered in Research Triangle Park, NC, 5Metis, Inc. is a recently formed pure‐play discovery agrichemical company with an emphasis on crop health. Founded in 2021, the company resulted from a union of the former Boragen, Inc. and AgriMetis, LLC agrichemical platforms, to combine boron‐based small molecule discovery and natural product synthetic biology for discovering new molecules with novel modes of action in the agrichemical space. 5Metis has a business model focused on discovery and early development with eventual partnerships for further development of de‐risked compounds with an attractive biological profile.

The purpose of 5Metis is to bring the agricultural industry solutions that are differentiated, and create value for the growers.
