Nick Watts
Research Director at Innovate Ag


Nick Watts has over 20-years of experience in bringing new technology to the agricultural sector in Australia. With Innovate Ag he has focussed on the applied use of peptides in agriculture and has a unique perspective on the regulatory hurdles involved in developing novel compounds for use in the Australian market.

Nick has worked on the Sero-X® Project, the world’s first registered peptide based bio-pesticide, since its inception in 2007. He is also leading the research and commercialisation process which Innovate AG is undertaking. He’s proud to be a part of small team that achieved what few companies around the world have done – securing regulatory approval for a novel active constituent.

Based in Brisbane, Australia, when he is not trying to save the bees one bee at a time, he uses his management skills to help wrangle two children, three cats, a dog and a duck. He has a Bachelor of Science from Macquarie University.
