Gautier Semences, established in 1952, is a French independant seed company, key player in the vegetable seed business. Besides from breeding new varieties, they also produce and retail high quality vegetable seeds for the professional market.
"We have a good understanding of agricultural constraints and develop varieties to facilitate professionals' work"
"By our conventional plant breeding work, we propose varieties that contribute to limit chemical intrants without compromising on the taste."
"We have chosen for more than 20 years to also put our history and know-how at the service of organic agriculture."
? Enhance their tracking of germplasm and seeds,
? Perpetuate and valorize researchers’ intellectual assets by digitalizing and centralizing their methods and tools
✔ Audit, installation and training of RnDExp® plant breeding software by Doriane support team
✔ High engagement of Gautier's Data Informatics manager
♥ Every piece of information is centralized; all the processes start in RnDExp® and every data end up there.
♥ Save time and reduce the risk of errors in some activities of the breeding department
Gautier Semences started to centralize and standardize their data and processes with RnDExp® in 2009, mainly for two reasons:
The deployment has been done for lettuce, squash, tomato, melon, pepper and cauliflower.
At Gautier Semences, most researchers use RnDExp® tools to handle their R&D and breeding processes, such as crosses, trials, pathology testing and seed quality. Every breeder of the team centralizes research data in the database and they share information depending on their user’s rights. The whole system is supported by Gautier’s Data Informatics manager Charles-Antoine, with the help of Doriane consultants when needed:
“We appreciate the good listening, comprehending and problem-solving skills of Doriane support team. Every time we request an optimization of the configuration, they provide quality assistance, including guidance, testing and feedback exchanges.”
Laboratory processes have also been totally integrated to the research IT system, without disturbing the routine of breeders. This crucial activity has greatly benefited from RnDExp®, notably for molecular markers analysis that must be done as fast and accurately as possible. The biotech manager explains
“We’ve saved time with this optimization and the risk of errors has been reduced. The whole team is happy about it!”
Charles-Antoine (Data informatics Manager):
“One of the best advantages of RnDExp® consists in being a true database software: Every piece of information is centralized; all the processes start in RnDExp® and every data ends up there. Even if some activities still work with spreadsheet tools aside, all the data is constantly being exported from and imported to RnDExp®.”
