Being the most widely grown crop in Europe, wheat is a small grain cereal accounting for one third of the world's population staple food. Limagrain Europe, one of the European leaders in wheat seeds and an expert in cereal products, offers high-performance varieties fitting with a large diversity of uses.



Launch of Apache, a variety of wheat combining yield, quality and disease resistance. Its bread making quality has made it a European success, to the point of creating a new quality standard in the profession.



A strategic crop


Limagrain Europe offers a broad line-up of varieties that cover all quality segments (bread making, biscuits, ...) with a large spectrum of tolerance to biotic (orange wheat blossom midge, fusarium, Septoria, rusts, Eyespot, ...) and abiotic stresses (drought, heat, frost, ...) and that therefore meet the needs of farmers, the agri-business industry and consumers.


"When I sow LG Absalon, I am playing it safe because even when there is a high disease pressure, it does well and the quality is always up to standard." 

Stéphanie, a farmer in France
