Innovation

Delivering Innovation for the total Vegetable Seeds supply chain - from grower to consumer.

BASF Vegetable Seeds is committed to bringing innovation to all of our customers, from growers to consumers.

 

Integrated breeding

We call our process of innovative product development “Integrated Breeding” - the combination of plant breeders’ knowledge with state-of-the-art technology and emerging science.

“Our Research and Development (R&D) department combines cutting edge technologies with green fingers. We develop vegetable varieties that help our customers grow safe and healthy food, with less resources, beating pest and diseases, growing reliably come rain or shine, and that delight the consumer eating it.”

Andreas Sewing
Vice President of R&D Vegetable Seeds
