Over 90 years of successful experience in breeding

In 1927, I.G. Pflanzenzucht was founded by six Bavarian plant breeders as a joint marketing organization for their varieties. Four of the six founding members are still active today on their own breeding farms or in breeding cooperations. I.G. Pflanzenzucht thus represents the oldest and most traditional breeder sales group in the seed industry and was later taken as a model by other companies.

The main advantage of I.G. Pflanzenzucht was and still is that not every associate has to maintain  their own marketing administration for themselves, respectively their varieties. Thus, the objective is to promote and focus on plant breeding for the development of new, high-performance varieties. Above all, seed production and nationwide variety sales were intensified as a result.

The idea was trend-setting and quickly established itself. Other well-known seed breeding companies joined I.G. Pflanzenzucht as new associates. Success did not fail to come. Today 12 plant breeders are associates of I.G. Pflanzenzucht. They guarantee a wide range of crops and varieties for all requirements of the modern agriculture.
