Plant Varieties, Breeding & Licensing
The James Hutton Institute has a proud history of collaboration with government and commercial organisations, working in partnership to meet the needs of evolving industries and changing consumer tastes.
James Hutton Limited manages several breeding consortia and programmes, building alliances to support the development of the next generation of soft fruit and vegetable varieties. With clearly established objectives, these partnerships are introducing new, industry ready varieties where they are needed most.
James Hutton Limited has an extensive portfolio of more than 40 plant varieties, many of which are protected by Plant Variety Rights and are available for licensing worldwide. Alongside breeding and plant varieties, James Hutton Limited can also offer a huge number of scientific services from the James Hutton Institute laboratories, to maximise existing plant varieties and assist with natural plant breeding. These include soil analysis, molecular diagnostics, crop trialling and pest management.
