Customised varieties for specialised and direkt marketing!
Our breeding services are offered and tailored to farmers, under the social construct of participative plant breeding. Farmers receive a core base of tubers of a variety bred to fit their needs and desires, and are consulted considering variety conservation and potential in vitro cultivation. From this point on farmers are responsible for producing their own seed potatoes.
As not every variety performs the same at different locations, we recommend to first try out multiple varieties with similar characteristics and then keep the most productive variety. This process does not lead to more costs for our customers.
Here a small overview what we are working on at the moment.
