We are currently breeding the crops sugar beet and wheat.
Research has a major importance at Strube: Strube Research therefore combines the future-oriented activities of Strube's research and development. With experienced scientists and ultramodern technical equipment, we advance progress in plant breeding at our research centre in Schlanstedt. We develop high quality, healthy and high-yielding varieties by using ultramodern technologies.
Numerous biotechnological methods are now integrated as tools into our classical breeding operations. These techniques accelerate our work with a high level of precision, offering reliable benchmarks for the selection of suitable plants and hybrids.
As plant breeders we must look far into the future, because the development of a new variety usually takes more than 10 years. We are already trying to predict what properties our products should have in 20 years and what requirements might be placed on plant production in the future, always endeavouring to give due consideration to regional characteristics such as climate and disease profiles: our varieties are ideally adapted to the respective growing regions.
Seed connects. The basis is created by a big network. This provides us a significant knowledge and a valuable experiences. We work with universities and scientific institutes to improve the quality of seed permanently. Furthermore, we are shareholder of Saaten Union. They support us in sales activities of our wheat varieties.
