Oct. 23, 2019
Started in 1995, Lal Teer Seed Limited is part business of Multimode Group, one of the most prominent business conglomerates in Bangladesh.
Since its inception the company has conducted extensive research to develop hybrid seeds through acclimatization and assessing suitability for local soil types. Germplasms were collected from Bangladesh and abroad to obtain the most desired varieties. The company has developed more than 68 hybrid vegetable varieties. As a result, vegetables can be cultivated all year round, helping mitigate nutritional deficiency in Bangladesh, increasing farmer income, and contributing to rural development.
By approaching farmers at their doorsteps, the company’s extension program has brought improved seeds to 30 agro-ecological zones in the country. In the past 16 years, the company has trained farmers, retailers, seed dealers and agriculture supervisors through adaptation trials, result and method demonstrations, farmers’ field days and community meetings. Thousands of farmers have been engaged in cultivation, from the sowing to post-harvest stages.
The company’s outreach program has started trials in several international countries to benefit more farmers such as in China, Malaysia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and the Middle East.

It started as a vegetable seed producing company with production facilities of about 1000 tons of vegetable seeds in four northern districts under close supervision of experienced agriculturists.
