We make seed quality

Well-positioned and internationally active – first-class seed quality is the basis for a good crop. We want to be sure that we supply our customers with only the best seeds. This is why we subject our seed to test methods, which we develop ourselves in many research projects with partners and European seed quality research institutes.

We look at the field

Our statements about our sugar beets can withstand scientific investigation. Based on various tests, we investigate how well the predictions on the germination and growing capacities from our lab tests are reflected in reality. We know the influencing parameters. And we can therefore continue to improve the quality of our seeds.
