Germinal was founded in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1825. Since then, the company has spearheaded some of the most groundbreaking work in seed development and has led the way in major contributions to the farming and amenity industries. It is now the largest family-owned British and Irish Forage & Amenity Seed Company.
Direct descendants of the original founder Samuel McCausland still work in managing Germinal today.
