Sicily, known for its agricultural tradition and favourable climatic conditions, is the ideal place for the development of new vegetable seed varieties. CapGen Seeds Italy will use half a hectare of crops in Sicily to study the adaptability of its seeds, focusing on the development of papaya and tomato, two key crops for the Italian market. This approach allows for in-house screenings to refine the seeds and ensure maximum quality and yield for Italian farmers. Antonino Fidone, Sales Manager of CapGen Seeds Italy, said: “This is a great opportunity both for CapGen Seeds and for the Italian market. Opening up the market to new companies is always a great benefit for the sector”.

Rafael Cremades, Managing Director of CapGen Seeds, said: “We are excited about the opening of our branch in Italy. This expansion will allow us to offer innovative agricultural solutions adapted to the needs of Italian farmers.
