Breeding research

Our successful and independent breeding work requires an exact knowledge about plants. This includes their genomes and the properties embedded therein, as well as their phenotypical characteristics and physiological modes of function. This is why we research independently and are involved in projects in which these fundamentals are further explored.
Armed with the new information, we can select plants and recombine them more accurately. This allows us to create new variation within out plant populations, forming the basis for the development of a new variety. We work out new testing and screening methods to be able to safely recognise disease-resistant and qualitatively improved plants. We optimise our field testing techniques and breeding methods, thereby improving the efficiency of our work.
