Supplying the population with quality food is challenging enough!

Your projects within the fields of crop improvement, animal breeding, agriculture and food production also demand your full time and attention? Therefore, take advantage of our market-leading expertise and solutions.

Important traits in agricultural plants and livestock such as yield, drought resistance, pathogen resistance, feed efficiency and quality linked parameters are genetically encoded. Genomic information, markers and modification linked to properties has enormous power.

Genomics technologies can be developed within relatively short periods of time. This can aid in the development of new breeds, crops, seeds, pesticides or food products.
