The Optigrow® story

(Below text will be turned into storytelling. Input is to be provided by NSD).

Optigrow® seeds are the result of a unique joint effort involving a number of organisations supporting the development of innovative technology. The technological research was conducted by Nelson Seed Development in close cooperation with Seed Processing Holland – a global leader within seed processing technology.

The project was supported financially by Horizon 2010 – the framework programme for research and innovation within the European Union – and by the Kamprad Family Foundation (Mr Kamprad is the founder of the global furniture giant IKEA). Further support was given by VINNOVA (the Swedish authority for innovation and research).

In 2016, the research director at Nelson Seed Development – Dr Tongyun Shen – was granted The Swedish Award for Innovation in Memory of Alfred Nobel for the development of the method behind the Optigrow® seeds.
