Limagrain Europe (Limagrain Europe) seeds maize rape sunflower wheat corn cereals peas
Geographically, Limagrain Europe is active on the main European agricultural markets with a clearly defined position for each of the different crops.

Thus the "strategic" crops for Limagrain Europe are maize, straw cereals, rapeseed and sunflower.
Maize is the crop from which Limagrain built up its destiny (the famous LG 11). Straw cereals represent more than half of the agricultural land used in Europe. Oil crops, rape in the North and sunflower in the South, are also of great importance with the growing demand coming from the food-processing and bio-fuel industries.

For these species, we strongly invest in order to control the whole supply chain, from research right up to marketing and sales. Limagrain has the largest research programme in Europe for maize and straw cereals. The company has the best germplasm in Europe as far as sunflower is concerned.
The acquisition of the European business of Advanta (maize, sunflower and straw cereals) in February 2005 has further helped Limagrain to strengthen its positions in these strategic species.


Certain "support" crops provide useful business opportunities as a complement to our strategic species. In this respect Limagrain Europe has woven partnerships with some of the world's top companies, such as DLF, for forage crops. Our customers therefore have access to products that come from the best research programmes.

Finally, certain "companion" crops in certain countries also provide interesting opportunities to complete our product range (such as sugar beet, cotton or amenity grasses, for example).

Through this strategy we have managed to strengthen our "multi-crop" position in all our European subsidiaries, and thus to meet all our customers’ requirements.
