Plant breeding for increased resilience

Lantmännen invests significant resources in research and development of new types of crops. Something that requires patience. Cultivating a new type of wheat with greater resilience against pests, cold weather and diseases, requiring less water and containing a higher amount of protein, can take between 7 and 10 years.

Mapping the DNA of the oat

With our extensive research, Lantmännen has been able to map the entire DNA of the oat via the company CropTailor. World-leading research that will enable healthier and more resilient varieties of oat, adapted to our Swedish climate.

Cultivation concept - up to 20% less climate impact

To help tackle future sustainability challenges, Lantmännen has developed a new grain cultivation concept with up to 20% less climate impact, less environmental impact and which contributes to increased biodiversity. Our Climate & Nature cultivation concept was launched in 2015 and is now used in grain cultivation all over Sweden.
