165 years of experience and innovation

Over 165 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.
