Throughout his career Mogens has been engaged in seed production, domestic product management, international product management, marketing, and until January 1st 2018 he has held the position as Head of Product Management, including the royalty business in DLF.
Mogens’ career has followed the international development of DLF and during this period, he has been involved with all new varieties and species in the DLF portfolio.

“The ‘Product-mentor’ is capable of providing detailed information about all of the more than 350 varieties in the DLF crop plan,” says Søren Halbye,CCO of DLF. “In addition, Mogens holds an unofficial record, as he has visited 40 countries to market and promote DLF products to customers and end users all over the world. Mogens has been a great asset in DLF, and we wish him all the best in his future civil life outside the seed business.”
