Bergearth Co., Ltd.
An agriculture business based on production and distribution of vegetable seedlings.
The company started out as a division of Yamaguchi Engei in charge of research and development, planning and sales in 2001. Established as its own corporate entity in 2005, Bergearth has been engaged raising grafted seedlings.
With the recent peak in grafting seedling production in Japan, a new type of agricultural business is on the verge of being introduced beyond the boundary of the current seedling industry.
