Shareholder Dümmen Orange gets The Plantum Sustainability price

The Plantum Sustainability Prize has been won by Dümmen Orange with their protocol for sustainable cultivation with minimal use of crop protection agents. The prize was awarded on Friday 20 September during the General Assembly of Plantum, the branch association for companies working with seeds and young plants.

By producing cutting material with as few chemical crop protection agents as possible, growers can immediately use biological crop protection. This fits in seamlessly with the integrated crop protection. In this way, we are working on a future with an eye for innovation and sustainability in which producers can produce as sustainably as possible to protect people and the environment.Sustainability is in our sector. After all, with seeds and young plants and with our specific knowledge and methods, we can contribute to making our world healthier, more social, more sustainable and more colorful. Not only for the current, but also for future generations.
