Cérience, a name with a strong meaning

The roots of the name Cérience come from the Roman mythology, as it refers to: 
Ceres, the Roman goddess of agriculture, harvest and fertility.  
Through its ending, Cérience resonates with experience and science; the experience of passionate women and men, a synonym of innovation and solution. 
In its graphic layout, the first letter of Cérience proudly appears like an initial - it seems to introduce a new story, the first step of the third agricultural path! 

L'Agronome semencier, a committed signature

The signature L'Agronome semencier expresses our ambition to become a key player of the agricultural transformation. A transformation based on the use of sustainable seeds and solutions and on a new agronomic approach. A solid and unique expertise, thanks to our know-how and our proximity to agricultural players.
