Ceresco’s IP Varieties

Ceresco is currently developing varieties that better meet its clients’ specific needs while providing producers with excellent yield. Resistance to disease and harsh weather conditions and the capacity to adapt to different types of soil are among the main concerns of Ceresco breeders.

Organic culture is a fertilizer and synthetic pesticide-free culture using Organic seeds. Ceresco contracts its own varieties in organic farming. The company also purchases public varieties with JAS/NOP and CEE certificates.
