With growing populations, increasing incomes and new health recommendations, the demand for a wider variety of high-quality vegetables will continue to increase, causing an immediate need to harvest more quality, nutritious food from each unit of land, water and energy. We are working with farmers to meet these challenges by developing vegetables seeds that enable growers to produce tastier, more nutritious vegetables that help them conserve natural resources.
Our Vegetable Seeds Division is focused on innovation to improve both the quality and productivity of vegetables grown from our seeds. We invest in research and development and use the latest technology not only to deliver the best products to the consumer, but also to provide yield potential and value to the customer, the grower, and to their customers, the chain partners. Ultimately, we hope that by developing products with excellent flavor and real nutritional benefits, people will enjoy eating more vegetables.
Our Vegetable Seeds Division is represented through two seed brands: Seminis® (open-field and unheated protected culture) and De RuiterTM (heated, protected-culture and rootstock).
