Our Main Cereal Crops

Cereals are grown in greater quantity and provide more food energy than any other type of crop worldwide. Our product is progress – in cereal breeding.

The continuous development of new and improved cereal varieties with high-quality seed is our goal. This way, we want to make sure that progress in yield really makes it to the field! Together with productive agriculture, this is a key factor for sustainable food production and responsible use of natural resources.

Hybrid rye is a highly efficient crop which is very successfully grown on medium and light soils. High yield, quality, agronomic characters such as winter hardiness, drought tolerance and standing ability as well as resistance to diseases like ergot are important. Rye is also an excellent feed component.
