We are Austria’s largest grower and producer of seeds. We have been true to our tradition of plant breeding since 1950. Our roots and headquaters are in Linz, the capital of Upper Austrias fertile agricultural landscape. A cooperative of famers ever since our foundation, we have grown into an internationally successful company with currently around 3,100 members.
We cultivate new varieties with improved characteristics to guarantee high yields and greater net product for farmers. The use of original seeds with guaranteed germination promotes the breeding progress. Our success is founded on continuous investment in research and development. People are the key to our success, uniting intergenerational knowledge with personal experience and fresh know-how.
We develop top varieties of agricultural crops for the international market. Maize wheat, oilseed rape and soybeans are at the heart of our diverse offer: We have more than 350 varieties from about 85 crops fulfilling special requirements for the respective markets. Each performs best in its area – for food, feed and energy.
We produce seeds and agricultural raw materials for the food and feed industry in the European agricultural area. Our highly modern and powerful processing plants as well as our staff’s many years of experience both in the field of production and seed processing as well as the direct interaction with the producer enables Saatbau Linz to produce seeds of highest quality. We reap the quality we have sown: the results of the efforts of all breeders, mulitpliers, technicians, farmers and partners to continuous improve our products.
We offer the full range of services related to the seed industry. Our specialised divisions combine everything that modern agriculture needs. This includes consulting, delivery, flexibility and guaranteed quality. From the quality seeds to a good harvest, everything comes from one source.
We are active and successful both in Austria and internationally. With our subsidiaries and partners, we are not only present in almost all European countries, but also in Asia and South America, where we operate research stations and winter nurseries. Not only our relationship with companies is global, but also our way of thinking, which continuously opens new frontiers with forward thinking.
Following the motto „diversity from above,“ our logo shows a sower who symbolises circulation, growth, man and nature.
Our claim, „Saat gut, Ernte gut“(Good seed, good harvest) expresses the character of the brand and what the company stands for in just a few words.
