PolyGenomX – In just 100 words:

PolyGenomX applies epigenetics (controlled stress) to enhance plant performance naturally, producing earlier-maturing, higher-yielding, stress-tolerant, climate-tough varieties of any species. These are not GMOs. They are new natural, fertile plant varieties whose stable, heritable performance traits include:

  1. Epigenetically-induced polyploidy, absorbing 50% more carbon to fuel remarkable growth  and higher yields;
  2. Deep stress tolerance to extreme salinity, aridity, soil toxicity & deficiencies, and climate extremes;
  3. Disease resistance, defying bacteria, virus, fungi and insects for higher yields without more land, fertiliser, fuel or labour.

We can “stack” these applications to produce, for example, disease resistant + environmentally tolerant + higher yielding plants.

In 2 Pictures – Worth 1,000 Words

Both plants in the photographs are Paulownia cultivars and share the same elite genetics drawn from a large-scale 48-year Chinese trial.

Both were planted in November 2011 and coppiced (cut to ground level) on 11 October 2012.   Both are growing within 10 metres of each other, in clayey soil in SE Queensland’s Border Ranges region (which is not ideal Paulownia country or soil).

Both photographs were taken on 22 January 2013 and illustate 15 weeks of growth.

Both men are approximately 1.7m in height  and are the same size in both pictures thus providing some scale for the trees.


The parent tree on the left is 2.98m.

The  polygenomic offspring on  the right is 5.67m.

The plant on the left is a diploid Paulownia (with 2 genomes per cell); its genetic twin on the right is a tetraploid (4 genomes per cell) developed by PolyGenomX using its proprietary Lamont Process to produce a new, genetically stable, fertile, carbon-efficient polygenomic variety.  The same technology can be applied to any plant species with similar results.
