The goal of our breeding program is to provide farmers with precisely those varieties that meet their operational needs. Whether conventional or organic farming, we see no difference. We offer seed that is adapted to the climate and soil conditions of various regions, offers increased yield and reduces pesticide use.
To achieve this, continuous and intense research activities are required. It takes eight to twelve years for a new variety to be approved and become available to the market. In the 20/21 business year we invested 252 Mio. € in research and development for high performing seeds.
