KWS in the UK
About KWS UK
Who are we?
Based at Thriplow near Cambridge, KWS UK has been providing growers with innovative new varieties to meet varied end-market needs for over 25 years.
We develop a wide range of oilseed rape, maize, sugar beet and cereal varieties in conjunction with the KWS group. We use a range of technologies to ensure improved consistency in crop performance to benefit all; merchant, farmer, processor and ultimately end-user customer.
Higher yields, superior disease and pest resistance and improved performance in adverse conditions are all key criteria we seek to establish in our product portfolio.
Growers anywhere across Europe can be assured that whatever KWS UK oilseed rape, maize, sugar beet or cereal they select, it has been developed using the same professional competences applied across all our breeding teams. It will be a variety that is one of the most reliable, innovative and market-leading selections available, tailored and tested for the conditions and regions they farm.
KWS UK Maize
Our maize headquarters is based in the heart of the UK maize growing area in Gloucestershire.
KWS has a wide range of top-performing maize varieties to suit all farm situations and offers timely advice and support across the seasons, to help you get the best out of your crop. KWS Maize UK provides strong technical and trials support to maize growers.
The KWS UK Maize Demonstration Field is adjacent to the Lydney office. We have a long-held tradition of opening the field during September, when we welcome growers and merchants to tour the variety plots.
