Seed research

The seed forms the basis for the development of a plant and is thus the deciding factor as to whether the genotype yield and quality characteristics can be expressed. We therefore operate our own seed research facility. Here we examine morphological, anatomical and physiological seed properties and their effect on germination and field emergence behaviour. We look for ways to affect these properties through breeding. With our expertise we develop innovative technologies for breeding and production.

We develop alternative and innovative analytical methods so that we can safely assess our seeds. This allows us to precisely identify seed qualities and to filter them out in a targeted manner. We work out selection methods to improve field emergence, behaviour and stress behaviour by means of breeding.

In terms of propagation we research the effect of cultivation activities on seed properties and develop new production methods adapted to these to increase and stabilize yields and the quality of raw seed material.
