Corn is the worldwide most cultivated crop and occupies an important place in the KWS crop portfolio. Our wide breeding program covers the temperate zones in Europe, North America, South America and East Asia. This includes all the relevant usages: grain corn, silage corn or corn for the ethanol and methane production.
Together with the classical breeding goals such as increased yield and disease tolerance, our varieties also adapt to the requests of the changing climatic conditions with draught tolerant varieties.
Our seed production follows the highest standards and guarantees the best seed quality for our customers. In China most of our field production is conducted by experienced partners in the provinces of Gansu and Xinjiang – two of the worldīs best areas for corn seed production.
In China there are about 35 Mio ha of corn to be grown. With this size China constitutes one of the biggest corn markets worldwide. For most of China`s main corn growing regions KWS can provide excellent suitable hybrids. Our hybrids can be harvested by hand but are especially adaptable for machine harvest of high-densely planted corn fields.
KWS Corn hybrids are currently sold and distributed by our local Chinese partners with whom we have built up a long-lasting, trustful relationships.
