Congratulations to Solana Seeds UK! Our UK subsidiary celebrates its fifth anniversary in July. In recent years, Solana Seeds UK has established itself as an important player in UK.


By mutual agreement, Torsten Spill will leave the Solana Group at the end of June 2020. The shareholders would like to thank Torsten Spill for the successful cooperation over the past 12 years.


For 50 years Earth Day has been held on 22 April to express appreciation for the environment and the earth. The breeding of modern potato varieties also make a contribution.


The Solana Group is now presenting five new varieties for the upcoming 2020 season, completing its portfolio with pallida-resistant table and starch varieties and a white-fleshed chip variety.


Due to the increasing spread of the corona virus, we would like to inform you that the Solana Group is fully complying with our orders and deliveries as well as other proven services, both nationally and internationally, as planned and without significant restrictions.


As of January 2020 Dr. Gunther Stiewe takes over the management of Research & Development department at Solana Group.


Baby Lou was voted Potato of the Year at this year's "Tüffel­test" (potato test) – a competition in order to find the tastiest little (baby) potato in the Lewitz region in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Germany).
