Illegal trade of non-certified seed harms not only agricultural plant breeders and licensed seed producers, but also farmers themselves. Which transactions are better to avoid?
Agencja Nasienna Sp. z o. o. in Leszno was established in September 2003 by 7 Polish companies – breeders of agricultural plant varieties. Three years later 6 foreign breeders joined Agencja Nasienna and in the next years – 2 others. In November 2010 the group of shareholders of our organisation expanded with 6 breeders of potato varieties. Currently 33 breeding companies or companies owned by agricultural plants breeders possess, directly or indirectly, the shares in Agencja Nasienna.
