Seed Production and Breeding
High-quality seeds form the basis for the successful cultivation of crops. An annual output of more than 25,000 tons of seeds makes Ekosem-Agrar one of the large seed producers in Russia.
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.
