As a family owned business working in plant breeding, we think in generations, not quarters. Our business model aims at the development of modern, locally adapted varieties, which were developed over many years. The annual result are new high-performance products for agriculture in about 70 countries worldwide.

The sector, our long-term orientation and our characterization as a family-owned business make KWS a special investment.
