                                        Data Sharing Agreement

Eden  Research plc, a leading UK agrochemical development company, is pleased to announce that it  has
entered into a data sharing arrangement with DSM Nutraceuticals Limited ("DSM").

Under  this agreement, Eden has provided DSM with rights to certain data acquired as part  of  its  EU
dossier  to  support  the  pesticidal registration of Thymol, which is one of  the  active  substances
currently  in the EU approval process for Annex I inclusion and a component of 3-AEY, Eden's  botrytis
product.  The  agreement allows DSM to use the data to support the registration of  its  nutraceutical
products and is for a consideration of £34,000.

DSM,  which  is  based in Kaiseraugst, Switzerland, is involved in the improvement in  performance  of
animal and human health products.

Clive Newitt, Managing Director of Eden Research, said:

"Whilst  this  agreement covers markets which are clearly not core activities of Eden, it demonstrates
how  we  are  maximising the value of all of the intellectual property that the Company has developed.
This  marks  further  progress with this project and we are continuing actively to  seek  out  further
opportunities to maximise the return on the core data packages we have invested in."

The directors of Eden Research Plc are responsible for the contents of this announcement.
