    Mission & Values

Our worldwide currency is trust

KWS sows the future. This is our first priority goal. We live the community together with our employees as well as with farmers or trade partners. A respectful and reliable approach forms the foundation.

Our worldwide currency is trust. In everyday life, this means: We meet farmers in partnership, see them as an equal entrepreneur and pay attention to their knowledge and experience. Our goal is to support them with our own knowledge in the best possible way. We address their requirements and needs in an expert way and provide them with advice eye-to-eye. We maintain and nurture relationships with our customers. This applies equally for contacts with our partners in the breeding sector and for our business and trade partners in agriculture.

2. We deliver the very best seeds to our farmers.

3. They trust us as a powerful partner throughout the entire value-added chain.

4. We create entrepreneurial freedom and help talents to unfold their full potential.

Team spirit

Our solidarity motivates and impresses. We deliver this team spirit to the outside. We have quick and uncomplicated contacts and understand each other as members of a company that, through its seed business, contributes to the success of farmers. But the most important guarantee for success is the competence of farmers. As a team player, we approach farmers eye-to-eye, respect them and place our focus on their requirements.

Proximity and trust

KWS is run as a family-oriented company. We foster open communication and transparent and comprehensible decisions and actions. The following applies internally as well as externally: KWS is a personal and trustworthy partner that delivers the best seeds. If we cannot fulfill this motto, we will solve problems in an honest, quick and uncomplicated way.


KWS is a long-term and sustainability-driven company that has been operating for six generations and specializes in seeds. Independence, freedom of choice and sustainable management connect KWS closely with agriculture. Our employees think and act as co-partners. We give them entrepreneurial freedom and encourage them to act sustainably and responsibly.


All employees contribute to viable solutions for sustainable agriculture. For this purpose, they keep abreast of new scientific and technological developments and evaluate trends and developments. We adopt future challenges in agriculture actively and early and invest heavily in research and breeding. Thus, we create the future of KWS together—characterized by responsibility to humankind and nature.
