Development of our activities in Auvergne

Since its creation, Limagrain has always been a key player of agriculture in Auvergne. A large proportion of its members’ farms work under contract with the Cooperative and cover more than 40,000 hectares, which is about half the total plant production in the county of Puy-de-Dôme. Sometimes these contracts are pluriannual (up to three years).
