Seeding the green future

Agriculture and landscapes are highly exposed to climate changes, as farming activities and green areas directly depend on climatic conditions. For more than 30 years, DLF breeding and product development has optimized grass varieties ideal to local climatic and environmental conditions. 

By increasing  resilience to changing factors such as disease pressure, severe drought and flooding situations, DLF has managed to meet the requirements for future production. Through dedicated plant breeding, our breeders are delivering solutions for more sustainable land use across the world’s temperate climate zones.

Constant improvements to top-quality varieties of grass, clover and alfalfa help our customers increase their outputs, reduce their inputs, and simplify the management of their green spaces. These are sustainable solutions.
