A good crop starts with good seed!

Every farmer will tell you that a good crop starts with good seed. Whatever the size of the company, the type of product or the type of consumer – the seed needs to generate a good yield, be resistant to diseases and produce a nutritious harvest. 

The Dutch seed sector is active throughout the world. Dutch companies are the world’s number-one supplier of vegetable seed, seed for ornamental plants and seed potatoes. This success is a result of the unique Dutch approach of strong collaboration between businesses, government, inspection bodies and the research and education sector, creating a conducive climate for innovation and production.

Have a look at this brochure that contains examples of cooperation at the crossroads of aid and trade compiled by the Dutch government. It will give you an overview of all the aspects involved in making quality seed available to farmers worldwide.

Seeds are the key to sustainable and productive agriculture. With a seed you can feed the world.

The importance of seed as a factor in improving agricultural productivity and production is clear. The use of quality seeds contributes to a large extent to the increase in crop yields (30-40%). In Mali, we can recognize the essential place of Dutch seed companies like Bejo Seeds, which has become a reference through the quality of its seeds. The AgriProFocus network has positioned itself for the organization of seed fairs with Partners such as the Mali Seed Association and the Bejo Corporation.Thanks Anne Marie for sharing
