Esmeralda Breeding was established in 1999, and from that moment on we have been devoted to creating, developing, and researching ornamental varieties. Our laboratories and experimental areas are located in Ecuador and Colombia.
Esmeralda Breeding is a subsidiary of parent company Tecnoviv, which controls the sale of royalties in Ecuador, Colombia, Japan and Korea. We also work with other agencies to extend our business globally.
We protect our commercial varieties internationally through patents and breeders’ rights before being introduced to the market.
Genetic improvement and Biotechnology
Esmeralda Breeding makes thousands of crosses per year, producing numerous seedlings that go through a selective process, and contribute to the genetic improvement of a wide range of ornamental crops. The process of evaluation and variety selection is carried out in farms located in Ecuador, Colombia, and Mexico.
We ensure all selected varieties meet strict requirements based on productivity, agronomic behavior, plague and disease tolerance, durability, and longevity.
To date, we grow more than 100 commercial varieties with more coming soon.
With our distinctive and profitable varieties we are creating for the future at an international level.
