Found the trait you were looking for?

Download, fill-in, sign and send us the Standard Breeders License document to gain cost-free access to the trait for breeding purposes. Should you wish to start commercial activities with the respective trait, download our Standard Commercial License Agreement to see the applicable general license conditions. Please reach out for entering into bilateral Royalty negotiations for the respective native trait(s) of interest. Once there is an agreement on Royalties, the Standard Commercial License Agreement can be signed and selling own varieties featuring the KWS native traits can start.

In case you would like to benefit from the Non-Asserts regarding the “Digestibility Maize” trait as described in the catalogue, please download, fill-in, sign and send us the acknowledgements of the Non-Assert “Pass-Through” Claims, Non-Assert All Breeders and/or Non-Assert Small Breeding Companies, as applicable.
