Where we work
Global presence, local knowledge
Our world-class team of 2,300 employees are based at R&D sites, trialling stations and facilities in over 50 countries.
Their dedication to the pursuit of high yield, high performance, best-in class produce means our quality and expertise is unmatched.
Close partnerships and dialogue at a local level enables us to develop solutions that address grower’s priorities. Working alongside farmers, academia and environmental groups, we unlock genuine value through innovation - bringing new varieties and solutions to market through harnessing the power of plant breeding, keeping pace with customers and increasingly challenging climate conditions.
Our commitment to research and development has enabled us to provide innovative solutions to customer requirements across the Americas, such as the Full Count Program in the US, where we’ve shipped over a billion watermelon transplants to deliver the exact number of high performing transplants growers need.
A successful and fertile region that is open to experimentation
We’re glad to be one of the leading seed suppliers in this fertile region. Here, the seed market is thriving, with particular success being achieved in the United States, Mexico and Brazil.
We are leaders in processing sweet corn, peas, beans, and are at the forefront of fresh produce markets, like eastern melons, romaine lettuce and speciality tomatoes.
Leading the way with pioneering melon varieties

A hub for sustainable innovation
Europe is home to our Seed Innovation Centre. Covering more than two hectares of land with greenhouses, climate cells and laboratories, the center is a hub for research and development into sustainable vegetable breeding, which we hope will make it possible to double the speed at which we breed new vegetable varieties.
With breeding stations located right across tthe Asia Pacific, we’re able to expertly tailor our seed varieties to growers’ needs and local climate conditions.
We’re also facilitating growers to produce larger and more sustainable vegetable yields in response to the region’s growing appetite for fresh, healthy food.
An emerging market with growing demand for fresh, healthy vegetables
We’re bringing some transformative seed innovations to this emerging market, which is helping to secure the livelihoods of smallholders across the Asia Pacific region.
Working hand-in-hand at a local level, we present intelligent solutions to grower’s specific challenges. Our tailored seed products for the region include cucurbit, sweet corn, capsicum, tomato, brassica and leafy vegetables.
