Breeding of Grasses and Clover
DLF-TRIFOLIUM has over 125 years of experience within plant breeding, and the company has given its name to some of the very best grass and clover varieties on the market. We are working hard to maintain and extend this position by continuously developing new varieties via a comprehensive research and breeding programme. Our research is done within an international network of breeding stations and research sites, ensuring that our varieties are tested under different climatic conditions and forms of use, and are thus optimally adapted to market requirements.
The basis for our research and development work is our breeding stations in Denmark, France, Holland, the Czech Republic and the USA. We also work closely with other breeding stations and a number of external research stations which are strategically located so that we cover all of the countries and climatic regions on which we focus in our sales work.
DLF-TRIFOLIUM has been working with biotechnology in its research and development since the beginning of the 1990s, both in the form of tools in traditional plant breeding and to develop the next generation of high-value clover and grass varieties. We have built up a broad technological platform within grass biotechnology, and thus gained a detailed knowledge of the genetic basis of quality-related properties in grasses.
SMART FROM THE START
During the ISF World Seed Congress 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, ISF released a video which highlights the need for new plant varieties in light of the challenges of this planet.
