160 years of experience and innovation

Over 160 years of KWS history began with growing sugarbeet and today, KWS is the world market leader in the commercialization of sugarbeet seed.

Due to the intensive research and breeding activities that were undertaken over the past years, the sugar yield has been continuously increasing and the disease and pest tolerance were significantly improved.

Regardless of the intended use, whether it is the production of sugar, animal fodder or biogas, KWS provides the right variety for each purpose and region. To meet the growing requirements of our customers, not only do we invest in research and breeding but we also continuously improve our production processes to obtain the highest seed quality. As seed specialists, this is our daily aspiration.

Detailed information about the country specific varieties and local consultants can be found on the separate country pages, which you can access over the links in the table below.


A new level of innovation in sugarbeet weed control.

The SMART way to grow sugarbeet

Classic breeding techniques were used to identify and to integrate the tolerance to ALS-inhibitors into KWS breeding programs to make CONVISO® SMART varieties the perfect partner of the new herbicide. The sugarbeet weed control system CONVISO® SMART is jointly being developed by KWS SAAT SE and Bayer.
