Our commitment to sustainable agriculture

Vandinter Semo is engaged in seed production, seed trade and seed cultivation. And although a large part of our turnover is achieved through seed trade and the cultivation of seed to order, we are strongly committed to the breeding of nematode-resistant green manures.

At Vandinter Semo, we believe in sustainable agriculture and we want to play an active role by developing crops that further reduce the use of agricultural pesticides/chemicals. Our cruciferous vegetable programme is unique and distinctive in that respect.

Vandinter Semo produces seeds for a large number of national and international customers and clients. For the actual production, we rely on carefully selected growers in the Netherlands.

Thanks to the favourable Dutch climate, the presence of different types of soil and the knowledge and skill of the cultivation supervisors, we have built a cast-iron reputation as a supplier of high quality seeds.

Coaten

The benefits of coating grass seed are becoming more and more recognized. Thus a proper coating with application of good minerals guarantees faster germination and early growth of grass seeds. Also at lower temperatures. Furthermore, grass seed coating provides an adequate defence against numerous animals. Tests on coating to protect grass seeds against rodents like voles, are very effective. At Vandinter Semo, we have the right equipment and expertise to apply different types of coatings on grass seeds.

It offers the following benefits;

  • Faster turnout
  • Better uniformity
  • Higher yield
  • More uniform crop
