Ideal is the location of our production station Tanzania. Thanks to the stable climate of the country, we are able to produce seed throughout the year enabling us to easily obviate seed shortages and to introduce new varieties quickly. In the dynamical vegetable seed market, this is of essential importance.
Cucumber, tomato, sweet pepper and melon. These are the principal crops of which we produce hybrid seed in Tanzania. However, our programme is expanding more and more with numerous other crops. Moreover, the breeding departments gratefully use the facilities of our production station as they can speed up the breeding processes and start their trials the whole year through.
Enza Zaden Africa Ltd., a joint venture between Enza Zaden and Triachem Tanzania Ltd, was established near Mount Kilimanjaro in October 2003. In 2004, we started sowing in our greenhouses. By now, we have grown considerably and we continue to expand our activities in Tanzania.
