Win-win situations and long term partnerships

Rijk Zwaan India offers a broad range of quality vegetable seeds. However our involvement with our customers does not just end with the sale of the seed. We regard our customers as our partners and we strive to create win-win situations and the formation of long term partnerships.



Selecting the right variety requires tailor made advice. This advice requires in depth knowledge on specific growing conditions and the latest market developments. Our Crop Specialists recommend varieties only when they are convinced that it is the best choice for your situation. It is important to us that our varieties subsequently get an optimal result, which is why we devote considerable time and effort to sharing knowledge.
