Lantmännen is a cooperative owned by 18 000 Swedish farmers with agriculture as our core business. We have a long experience in breeding, which is an important part of our core business. Our breeding section operate in Svalöv and Lännäs in Sweden and Emmeloord in the Netherlands. Our drive is to create value throughout the entire food chain, from field to fork. Lantmännen previously presented varieties under the brands Svalöf Weibull and SW Seed.

In the beginning of the food chain, we focus on developing sustainable varieties of field crops; cereals, oilseed, forage grasses and legumes, potatoes and willow trees. We develop varieties with strong agronomic performance in yield, nitrogen efficiency and disease resistance in order to minimize the total environmental footprint and provide economic value to uses in farming and processing industry. We adapt our unique genetic material from the northern temperate climate, in a technologically innovative way to meet the requirements in our home and international markets and to prepare to changing climate.

International seed operations are coordinated from Sweden, through our extensive network of distributors, from Northern and Central Europe to the global market. You can find our diverse portfolio of varieties all around the world.

What we have done

We are one of the first breeding companies established in Europe, with more than 130-years of experience. Swedish government and the Swedish co-operative have jointly contributed to our history and progress. We have provided good varieties adapted to all temperate climate zones. This has given enormous social benefits to our society, and it all began in one of our farms in Svalöv.

Our strategy is to work internationally through co-operations and an extensive network of commercial distributors, partners and universities, all over the world.
