Fields of business
Our strengths are our close proximity to farmers, a broad portfolio of leading varieties, a strong brand and a strong sales presence.
All of KWS’ business activities are focused on providing modern agriculture with innovative varieties to grow feed and food and regenerative raw materials to produce renewable energies. Our goal is to supply products for all forms of agriculture: conventional, ecological and those using genetically optimized varieties.
Historically, our company’s success was founded on sugarbeet breeding. Today, our product portfolio includes many other crops: corn and cereals such as wheat, rye, barley, oats and triticales, as well as oil plants such as rapeseed, sunflower and soybean, pulses, catch crops, potatoes, energy plants and ecological seed.
Our growth is driven by our breeding work on these types of crops. As part of this, we also cooperate with other companies and research institutions by providing breeding services.
KWS is represented in all key markets with its own selection and testing locations. Our multiplication activities and seed processing plants are tailored to deliver top-quality seed for the crop in question.
