The source material of our seed potato production is produced in the course of the maintenance breeding work under strictly controlled conditions on our breeding stations. The further multiplication of these prebasic seed potato lots is then exclusively carried out in coastal regions, some of the healthiest regions in Europe. We provide ideal seed production conditions through carefully selected production farms and reliable farmers.
Varietal maintenance aims at the production of healthy and pure source material for the further production of prebasic and commercial seed. For this purpose we use well established methods of clonal maintenance and, in addition, modern techniques of meristem culture. Permanent selection and strict control of elite plants guarantee the supplies for our production area.
