Breeding and producing hybrid vegetable seeds in Azerbaijan

Bringing an innovative breath to Azerbaijan's agricultural sector, Azərbaijan Toxumçuluq Təsərrüfatı-Gözel Seeds has been taking a main role in the breeding of tomato, cucumber, pepper, watermelon and other vegetable seeds since 2019. Operating with the aim of increasing the agricultural potential of the country, and enriching the local product diversity, the company continues its work to increase the productivity, durability and taste of vegetables.

"Azerbaijan is a country with a significant presence of global companies in the agricultural sector, leading to intense competition among these enterprises", says Mr. Emrah Böler, Business Development Manager of the company. "As a result, companies strive to develop new, high-quality, tasty, and healthy varieties that meet both international and domestic market standards. The development of new varieties provides these companies with a competitive edge."

Foreign imports
He explains their company, "Azərbaycan Toxumçuluq Təsərrüfatı"-Gözel Seeds, holds a unique position as the only local company producing hybrid vegetable seeds in Azerbaijan. "Gözel Seeds mitigates reliance on foreign imports and offers products suited to the local soil and climate conditions. As a local enterprise, we are more accessible to Azerbaijani farmers and possess a deeper understanding of their needs."

By introducing new varieties tailored to regional conditions, Gözel Seeds aims to enhance competition within the sector. "Furthermore, by expanding into the international market, we aspire to establish ourselves as a one of the key companies in Azerbaijan."

Gözel Seeds has made a name for itself in the international arena by carrying out breeding activities on a total of 7 hectares of land in Azerbaijan, Spain, Türkiye and Uzbekistan. In addition, it accelerated its R&D studies by investing in laboratories in Türkiye, where a 2,5 hectare product development and testing station will expand to 6,5 hectares in 2025. Als in Takshent, investments take place into a new 3 hectares product development and testing station.

Gözel Seeds aims to be active in a wider geography by increasing its innovative work in the agricultural sector in the future and to continue to take a leading role in the agricultural sector with international collaborations.
