Winter wheat

Winter wheat

Our winter wheats provide agricultural businesses with a wide varietal portfolio that is genetically adapted to different countries and regions. Apart from high yield performance and well-balanced quality we combine multiple resistance traits in our varieties to ensure the highest possible yield stability.


The foundation of our of winter wheat breeding is the selection of young cultivated material at our company headquarters in Söllingen. As the varieties are developed, inspection and trialing is expanded to breeding stocks over all relevant wheat-growing regions of Europe to ensure varieties are adapted to the different climates and soils in Europe. Our breeding stocks are inspected by either our own experimental stations on site or our partners.


The best breeding stocks are then registered with the national authorities for approval. Once approval is granted they are distributed by Saaten Union or by our local commercial partners.
