Global sugarbeet seed leaders. Local focus.

Welcome to KWS. We serve over 70 countries and we’ve now entered the New Zealand market at a time when sugarbeet is becoming an increasingly popular forage crop among Kiwi farmers.

Our new sugarbeet growing system combines herbicide tolerant beet varieties with a dedicated herbicide which is designed to make weed control easier and highly effective leading to consistently high yields. We will make further announcements about this system in 2022. To keep updated register your details here

Although we’re a global leader, we also recognise that Kiwi farmers are among the best in the world, so we’ve been trialling our beet varieties around New Zealand over the last 3 years to help us identify the best genetic material for local conditions.
