Strube UK Seed Breeding

BBRO Recommended List leading sugar beet seed varieties such as Strube UK’s Haydn, Degas and Gauguin and don’t come into existence by accident. These sugar beet seed varieties are the product of years of concerted breeding research on our part and are a response to the increasingly high demands placed on sugar beet breeders by the farming community and the demands imposed by climate change.

The requirements for sugar beet and grain seed varieties have increased steadily over the past 15 years. In particular, “resistance breeding” against diseases and pests has acquired an ever greater significance within classic breeding objectives. Today, Strube are setting up multiple resistances against leaf, ear and root diseases, while simultaneously boosting yield and improving sugar beet seed quality.

In our breeding programs we also include plant traits suitable for biomass production for energy generation. We genetically track tolerances against abiotic stress factors such as water or nutrient deficiency and examine these in special horticultural tests.

The result of our sugar beet breeding efforts is a range of sugar beet seeds that are not only capable of delivering high yields, high sugar concentrations and high levels of disease resistance today, but a new range of even higher quality seeds for tomorrow.
