Seed Valley (Plus Partner)

Seed Valley is the area in the Netherlands with dozens of companies active in the fields of plant breeding, seed technology, and associated services. Here specialists develop the ‘green software’ that determines the colour of a flower, how a tomato tastes and whether lettuce is resistant to diseases. Numerous innovations are put into practice here in the creation of continually better seeds.
