Seed Production and Breeding
High-quality seeds form the basis for the successful cultivation of crops. With almost 42,000 tonnes sold, Ekosem-Agrar is one of Russia's largest seed producers.
We acquire licenses for varieties for exclusive reproduction and distribution in Russia. We use Russian, German and Canadian varieties and mostly produce seeds for grain, grain legumes, grasses, clover and lucerne.
Apart from supplying the Group with high-quality seeds, this business segment also focuses on the development of new varieties. Going forward, we intend to further expand the production of grass seeds and the hybridization of maize.
We regard our in-house seed breeding activities – which are partly conducted in cooperation with foreign breeding companies – as a long-term investment that will secure our leading position in the Russian seeds market in the future.
