“GREAT JAPANESE SEEDS TO THE WORLD, NEW LIVES FROM THE WORLD.”
Kobayashi Seed ambitiously breeds various seeds and seedlings that suit countries and the soil.

We mainly export cabbages, broccolis, cauliflowers, Chinese cabbages, Chinese vegetables, onions, melons, water melons, pumpkins, and eggplants.

We have put all efforts into breeding because there is great demand for the type of F1 seeds all over the world.

As a result, we succeeded in spreading our seeds in South-east Asia, Middle and Near East, Africa, Europe, and South and North Ameria.

Kobayashi Seed thinks globally about seeds and food so that we communicate with people in 70 or more countries.

We hope to start teaching how to cultivate plants and selling products grown abroad.

We Kobayashi Seed Co., Ltd. work to make a social contribution with seeds.

Japan seeds

The number of vegetable varieties distributed around the world is increasing rapidly. To meet demand from overseas markets, we produce and market highly profitable and disease-resistant varieties that best match the characteristics of each region. In addition, technological partnerships with leading overseas seed companies allow us to combine the merits of Japanese and local varieties, and import and market high-quality products in Japan.

Plant Breeding & Experiment Farm
Most advanced breeding through the latest technologies and expertise

What is necessary for breeding? This is a question that our breeders constantly ask themselves throughout their tireless research. At the Niihari Breeding and Research Station, a wide range of research is conducted to breed improved vegetable varieties geared toward the domestic and overseas markets. During our long history of R&D, we have developed numerous high-quality varieties and thereby contributed greatly to the seed industry. As many of our varieties have become very popular, our R&D strengths are now recognized to be among the best in the industry, both inside and outside the country.

Commodity Control
High-quality, reliable seeds for customer

Customers have been becoming increasingly demanding about the quality of seeds in recent years. Mechanical sowing of pelleted seeds or seed tapes, as well as priming treatment for accelerating germination, are also becoming common practice. To meet the various requirements of seeds, we established the Asaka QC Center, one of the most sophisticated seed storage facilities in the country, in March 2000. We are working to realize storage systems that are ideal for each type of seed, and implement strict quality control to provide disease-free seeds.
