Limgroup is active in breeding, clonal breeding production and sales of seeds for professional asparagus and strawberry growers worldwide. 
Limgroup makes a continuous effort to fulfil the wishes of its customers and other parties concerned.

Limgroup complies with the statutory requirements arising from legislation regarding the marketing and sales of their crops.

Limgroup is responsible for the quality of its seeds and checks the quality in an extensive testing programme in the field and in various laboratories.

In order to supply top quality seeds and the best service, Limgroup operates in accordance with a quality management system to control and improve the quality of all activities and processes from breeding to sales. This system is audited internally on a regular basis.

To be able to supply top quality seeds and the best service, Limgroup outsource several test to Naktuinbouw. Tests, such as germination tests and specific tests on diseases.

Furthermore, through variety name and batch number on the original packaging, all our seed lots can be traced throughout the entire process, from production to sales. This traceability is also very effective against reproduction and sales of our seeds by unauthorized third parties and may also be used in various external quality assurance and production systems.

Managing and maintaining seed and plant quality and health in the fresh produce chain is a joint effort from several stakeholders. Each individual stakeholder takes decisions on seed storage, production and cultivation methods as well as on risk mitigation measures at its own discretion and at own risk.

All varieties in Limgroup’s present range are obtained without making use of genetic modification techniques which lead to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to which Directive 2001/18 of the European Parliament and of the Council of the European Communities of 12 March 2001 on the deliberate release into the environment of GMOs applies. The foregoing applies to Limgroup varieties which have been or will be marketed. NON GMO statement available at the downloads page.

Limgroup considers the risk of any regulated GMOs being present in the propagating material of its varieties very small. When developing the propagating material of Limgroup varieties the greatest possible care is exercised based on existing legal requirements relating to the marketing of varieties. Moreover, the methods used in the development and production of this propagating material include procedures to prevent the presence of regulated GMOs.

Seed treatment is only applied by Limgroup in case it considers this the most effective method to control a possible disease and/or pest, and/or to realize a reduction in crop spraying; Limgroup acts hereby in conformity with the applicable statutory regulations.
