The HILD seed company was founded in 1919 by Karl HILD as a family business in Marbach/Neckar, Germany. Since 1988 we have been affiliated with Nunhems, an internationally active vegetable breeding company that operates in the most important crop-producing countries worldwide; as Vegetable Seeds, it presently embodies the vegetable seed's activities under the brand Nunhems within Bayer. With us, progress has tradition.

HILD and Bayer, Vegetable Seeds division maintain breeding programmes for all important vegetable species, from which highly productive varieties for professional growing result. Apart from breeding, seed processing is an important focal point of our research activities. With the help of modern processing methods (e.g. priming) we have made a name for ourselves.

In November 2011 we have opened our enlarged seed technology facility at our location in Marbach am Neckar. This investment enables us to better meet the individual needs of vegetable producers. All of our various types of vegetable and herb seeds can now be centrally processed and stored on an area of 4,000 m². The high technical quality of our seed is a precondition for success and customer satisfaction.

In our complimentary grower catalogue you can find an assortment of seeds from approximately 100 vegetable species from our company as well as detailed information about the varieties and seed forms.

HILD’s Presence at the Trade Fair FRUIT LOGISTICA 2017

HILD 'Der Züchter vor Ort' appeared as a competent partner for high-quality seed, namely with regard to genetic as well as technical aspects. In particular, our range of herbs was highlighted as a focal point with its diversity of species as well as the field of organic seeds for which great interest was shown.
