It is our passion and not just a trend
Since nearly 20 years KWS is active and dedicated in the organic sector and organic farming. It is an activity in addition to the traditional classical agriculture.
We are passionate to develop varieties especially for organic farming and to transfer organic knowledge and best practice examples into the practice. Therefore we have an own organic farm, a developer for organic varieties and a own and very experienced organic product management. For us is a mission to combine the classical agriculture and the organic life. We use the harsh organic conditions to find the right variety for our organic portfolio and for your region. For this we test on several places in Germany under real organic conditions in a real organic crop rotation. We are passionate about continuous improvement for our customers.
Under the harsh conditions of organic farming, we put our high-quality varieties to the test - across all crops.
Next to our varieties we are also doing some agronomical trials, to enlarge our expertise steadily.
On our own organic farm, Klostergut Wiebrechtshausen, which is farmed under Naturland standards, we are gaining further experience and use best practise examples to be in contact and on an eye-to-eye level with our customers.
