Plant breeding: Key technology for sustainable and profitable farming!

Bringing nutrition, nature and efficiency together: As one of the world’s leading seed specialists, we are convinced we can and must make a significant contribution toward finding solutions for sustainable farming that are also economically viable. One of the main focuses of our diverse KWS portfolio is on the reduction of pesticides, fertilizers and other agricultural resources in fields. At the same time, it is helping to safeguard and increase urgently needed yields. The future only works together!

As a company with a tradition of family ownership, we think in terms of generations – sustainably and oriented toward the future.
