Progress in agriculture is dependent on farmers’ access to modern production resources (seeds, plant care products, mechanization, irrigation, etc.), and to the evolution of farming practices.
To provide farmers with access to factors of production, we develop high-performance seeds that meet their needs. Farmers choose commercial seeds because they give assurance of better harvests. Besides seeds, more and more we are providing farmers with efficient and responsible agronomic solutions, such as precision farming.
We are investing in high added-value chains to provide security to the farmer members of the Cooperative and develop know-how in the transformation of cereals.
Regarding intellectual property, we are committed to encouraging access to genetic progress. Convinced that throughout the world farmers should be able to obtain fair prices and remuneration for their work, we also militate for a balanced regulation of agricultural exchanges worldwide.
In the area of precision farming, Limagrain Coop developed, for the Cooperative’s farmer members, Limagine Decision, an innovative solution to guide growing from sowing to harvesting. Limagine correlates meteorological information with the data recorded by the farmer, thus helping him to manage, analyse and anticipate the process of his crops and make the best decision at the best time.
Limagrain offers products better adapted to new consumer trends: recipes that are palm-oil-free, additive-free and even gluten-free.
For Limagrain, promoting the coexistence of all forms of agriculture, whether conventional, organic, or GM, and adapting to different types of agriculture throughout the world, is part of a balanced vision of sustainable development.
We believe it is necessary to combine all human energies and implement every possible technological improvement in order to meet the challenges of food production and security for the world population.
We know that accessibility to diverse genetic resources has always been the basis for plant innovation.
This is the reason we wish to protect plant breeding while encouraging access
Everywhere, agricultural prices fluctuate in proportions that no other economic sector could withstand sustainably. This volatility is a grave threat to the future existence of farmers. The world is slipping towards agriculture without farmers, driven by speculative finance, and functioning through economic, environmental and social dumping; this destabilizes all forms of subsistence and family agriculture.
We defend all farmers in the world, and all forms of agriculture, through momagri, of which we are one of the founder members.
