Sugar beets

Modern sugar beet varieties are high-tech products. Within the seed is the combined expertise and experience gained from many years of research and trials, biotechnology and genome research, seed propogation and production, seed quality research, refinement and pesticide research.

With regionally adapted genetics and excellent seed quality we strive for excellent varietal performance in all growing regions of the world. Our porfolio includes sugar beets with special resistance to diseases such as Rhizomania and Rhizoctonia. This appearance of Rhizoctonia is relatively recent, and so far appears limited to certain regions. We also produce varieties of Autumn planted beets that are grown in the warmer and dry growing regions of southern Europe. We attach great importance to excellent seed production to ensure our varieties can always deliver optimum yields for growers. We therefore monitor propagation and processing using our 3D technology. With 3Dplus we offer growers an additional possibility to boost yields.


Our sugar beet varieties are marketed either directly by us or via our subsidiaries or representatives.
