Nordic Maize breeding was originally founded in 2005 as a collective initiative of international independent maize breeders. At the present day Nordic Maize breeding is a Dutch, 100% privately owned company. The persons involved in the operation have a long history and experience in plant breeding on different fields. Our activities are primarily B2B.
Nordic Maize breeding stays away from GMO's and is only using classical breeding techniques.
Besides breeding we produce organic maize seeds and have a SKAL organic certification.
Nordic Maize breeding aims to contribute to genetic diversity and a more sustainable and environmental friendly agriculture with respect for nature and the worlds common resources. Major breeding goals are decreasing the dependency on chemical weed control and the use of fertilizers through creating strongly innovative maize varieties that make these goals possible. New farming and cropping concepts are created simultaneously with the development of new varieties providing an alternative for the world's dominating major seed companies.
By being and staying a flexible and independent company, Nordic Maize breeding is able to provide in fast and tailor made solutions that are ready to use.
The Nordic Maize breeding varieties find their way to the market through multiple seed companies, mostly not having their own maize breeding program. On new maize markets Nordic Maize breeding undertakes the marketing by working directly with farmer cooperation's or other third parties.
