The Kaveri seed company Ltd., was originally conceived as G.V.B. Rao & Company in 1976 by Mr. G.V.Bhaskar Rao
One of the significant milestones in the journey of GVB Rao & Co was the introduction of the first ever proprietary private corn hybrid in South India.
GVB Rao & Co ventured into value added breeding and subsequently in 1986, the existing company evolved into a bigger entity under the name of Kaveri Seeds. Kaveri Seeds marched ahead and extended the service to the farmers by diversifying into proprietary hybrid seeds of other crops such as sunflower, pearl millet, sorghum, rice and vegetables. Over the years, a sharp focus on Research & Development has enabled Kaveri Seeds to earn a sizeable market share. Today, Kaveri Seeds is not just a leading brand in hybrid seed market, but a name that spells trust, reliability and performance and above all, farmers’ prosperity. The year 2007 is of great significance in the annals of the company as it has scaled to new heights by becoming a listed company.
