Breeding objectives

The basis for globally successful marketing is a varietal portfolio that is genetically adapted to the most varied requirements of countries and regions. For the practical development activities of our company this means covering the widest possible range of breeding objectives.

The requirements for grain and sugar beet varieties have increased steadily over the past 15 years. In particular, resistance breeding against diseases and pests has acquired an ever greater significance within classic breeding objectives. Today we are setting up multiple resistances against leaf, ear and root diseases while simultaneously boosting yield and improving quality.

In our breeding program we also include plant traits suitable for biomass production for energy generation. We genetically track tolerances against abiotic stress factors such as water or nutrient deficiency and examine these in special horticultural tests.
