This secured and originated KKSM's position in the hybrid vegetable market. In 2004, the international seed distributor, Bakker Brothers became a daughter company of KKSM, and the company product range was further expanded by introducing a wide range of sorghum, oats, lucerne, sunflower and canola seed. KKSM now has cooperation agreements with almost all the major seed companies around the world. These agreements have contributed to the company excellent seed quality and availability of products. The company focus through the years has been on three major markets. Professional farmers, the seed export market and home gardeners and small-scale farmers. However during the last few years, KKSM recognized a need for educating small scale farmers in South Africa.
