THE BEST MULTI-SPECIES SEED PARTNER FOR FARMERS IN SEARCH OF PERFORMANCE
EURALIS Semences and the CAUSSADE Semences Group joined forces by creating LIDEA on 1 September 2020. Lidea designs and offers tailored, sustainable multi-species seed solutions close to our ecosystem, which create added value for producers all year round.
Lidea offers farmers over 60 species, i.e. more than 500 varieties of maize, sunflower, small grains, rapeseed, soya, sorghum, pulses, fodder and cover crops. The varieties developed are specifically tailored to the needs of farmers and different market segments (high in nutrients, rich in oil, proteins, etc.).
This diversity helps all farmers optimise their profitability and increase yields. The Lidea range helps develop rotation plans adapted to agronomic and economic objectives.
By investing over 34 million euros annually in research and development, Lidea produces a comprehensive and distinctive range of seeds which meet both the latest challenges faced by farmers and societal expectations. Lidea offers a wide array of solutions, not only for high-quality food for human and animal consumption, whether using conventional or organic methods, but also to meet the challenges of new market opportunities, such as biofuels.
Lidea aims to satisfy clients, distributors and farmers by developing close-knit relations.
By listening to and understanding the needs of our clients we can support them and offer them tailored solutions and personalised, alternative practices throughout the crop cycle.
