Check out the article on the key figures of seed companies in Europe and France that has been updated with UPOV data. 


While reading Peter Wohlleben's bestseller The Hidden Life of Trees, I was puzzled by this statement, that may be useful in research production of seed companies: "Shortly after fertilization, when the seeds are ripening in the flower, they react to environmental conditions. If it is particularly warm and dry, appropriate genes are activated. Scientists have proved that under these conditions, spruce seedlings are able to tolerate warm weather - though they lose the same measure in frost resistance.⁶³"
