Multiplication field in France: In the seed production fields, the female parent male-sterile plants are planted  next to the male parent pollinators for targeted pollination.

Strong partners. Strong products.

The best is only just good enough for us. Only a certain portion of the harvested seed fulfils our quality requirements. After harvesting, we select high-quality seeds according to high quality standards and condition these precisely in various processing stages. This allows us to ensure that the genetically defined performance of a variety can be achieved in the field.

The quality requirements posed by the processing industry on the contracting farmers are extremely high for chickpeas and soyabean. Thanks to the close collaboration with our partners for breeding, we are able to meet these requirements. As an sales partner, we offer our customers high-yielding varieties with excellent genetics. We take care of the breeding, selection and packaging of the seeds on site. This enables us to guarantee the best conditions for optimum yields.

Optimal field conditions during seed growing are the basis for excellent seed quality. Local partners multiply our seed in France (Provence) and Italy (southern Po valley, Tuscany). The Mediterranean climate is particularly well-suited for seed growing. We can ensure topmost quality because the conditioning and testing of the “mother seed” is performed according to our standards in Söllingen.

Pelleting and processing

The pelleting of Strube sugar beet seed is performed by our partners, who have an invaluable expertise in pelleting technology. They treat the seed with fungicides and insecticides according to the specific requirements of our customers.

At our location in Schlanstedt, we carefully condition wheat, barley, triticale and peas. The pre-basic and basic seed of our wheat varieties is conditioned in Söllingen. We also have the largest rye processing plant in the Saaten-Union Group.

Seed is a natural product: climate, cropping technology and genetics can cause the seed to be immature and incapable of germination. Through various processing stages under high quality standards, we will select only the best part of the seed crop, which is then sold to our customers. Only 20% of the original cleaned material will meet our quality standards and be further processed for the market. The seed that is not used commercially is marketed as animal feed.
