    Soil fertility

Bringing soil protection and yield efficiency together

Soils constitute not only the essential natural foundation of life for animals, humans and plants: They are also a farmer’s capital. Without intact soil, a farm’s yields and profitability are at risk. In the face of climate change, a growing world population and the increasing demand for high-quality food, the crucial resource called “soil” is becoming scarcer.

Plant breeding plays a key role in this area: KWS boosts yields by achieving continuous progress in plant breeding without the need to expand agricultural land to a similar extent. Crop rotations, together with our varieties, are an effective answer to reducing pesticides and fertilizers. We are not only delivering seeds to farmers, but we also accompany farmers from sowing to harvest and offering our digital services to get the best out of KWS seeds!

A well-developed catch crop stock in the field during a period of otherwise limited vegetation — as well as beyond this period — is like an overflowing food pantry for soil life.
