MONHEIM, GERMANY: Bayer CropScience subsidiary HILD samen GmbH has opened enlarged seed technology facilities at its site in Marbach am Neckar, Germany. The company plans to process and store various types of vegetable and herb seeds on an area of 4,000 m2 centrally at the site in the future. HILD has invested some €4 million in the facilities.

“The vegetable seed business is of outstanding importance for Bayer CropScience. Our objective is to exploit this good technological position in order to achieve stronger growth in this segment in the future,” said Achim Noack, Member of the Bayer CropScience Board of Management.

“Bayer CropScience is making this investment to develop new solutions that will help producers boost their yields and increase their productivity, with appropriate plant traits that meet consumers’ quality requirements,” explained Douwe Zijp, CEO, Nunhems, the vegetable seed business of Bayer CropScience.

“The high technical quality of our seed is a precondition for success and customer satisfaction. This extended seed technology facility will enable us to better meet the individual needs of our customers in future,” added Dr Paul Rubitschek, Managing Director, HILD. For the new building, HILD acquired the 4,700 m2 area of land located next to its existing site in late 2009.
