Cloud solutions strengthen international collaboration
The development of new vegetable varieties is Rijk Zwaan’s core activity. With a head office in the Netherlands supporting over 30 subsidiaries, cloud technology is indispensable for the company.
All IT disciplines in-house
As one of the major players in the global vegetable seed market, international collaboration and innovation are essential to our success. From research and breeding to the production and sale of vegetable seeds from our new and innovative vegetable varieties, IT is indispensable at all stages of the process – and we have all the necessary IT in-house.
Cloud technology helps us to achieve our goals
Our research and breeding work is being conducted on an increasingly international level, and data-driven decision-making is gaining in importance too. We need cloud technology to transform the ever-growing volumes of data into useful information.
Cloud technology speeds up innovation
Cloud technology enables us to share data faster and more efficiently, such as when forwarding drone-captured images of a trial field containing new lettuce varieties in Australia. Selectors, breeders and data analysts at our Research & Innovation facility in Fijnaart can then immediately use the images in their work. Data on things like sunlight, rainfall and temperature enables us to analyse the results of new vegetable varieties. Thanks to cloud technology, we can pool our R&D strengths and therefore work together to achieve our goal: to provide high-quality vegetable seeds to our customers in order to contribute to the world’s food supply.
