Seeds are everywhere,
So are we

What do kids, football stars and cows have in common? They cannot do without our high-quality turf and forage grass. It all begins with a seed

As you might have guessed, we are into grass. Where others hardly notice the green grass underneath their feet, we see a plant that is easy to take for granted - yet difficult to be without. That is why we are proud to be one of the world’s leading turf and forage seed companies.

However, there is more to us than grass. We are also dedicated to a wide range of other species like clovers, alfalfa, forage brassicas, herbs, fodder, sugar beets, cover crops, seed potatoes, vegetable seeds and flower seeds. 

On this page, you can get to know us better and explore how we make a difference together. Seed by seed.

Seeds for a sustainable future

Everything we do is about breeding and innovating more sustainable products. From the forage grasses that help cows produce more milk with reduced impact on the environment to the lawn grasses that thrive in drought areas with almost no need for irrigation. So while you might not see it, the grass is getting greener – and we are just getting started.

Innovating small seeds with big benefits

Global hunger. Global warming. A global cry for action. Today, we need crop solutions adapted to more extreme conditions that can also help reduce the climate footprint left by human activities. This isn’t easy, but we are up for the challenge. As one of the world’s leading seed companies, developing sustainable products is the core of our business. The result is next level plant breeding that helps you and people all over the world to take the next step in a greener direction.
