Sugar Beet Biotechnology

There’s no denying that in the last 25 years the processes in classic plant cultivation have been revolutionised. Biotechnological procedures such as marker-supported selection, in-vitro culture or double haploid technology, have been developed and are now well-integrated into classic breeding operations. The result of this innovation has been that the time required developing and introducing new varieties of crops such as sugar beet, have been drastically reduced.

Sugar Beet Biotechnology Strube UK

Progress Through Research

Strube have been at the fore of this biotechnological revolution for many years now. Our biotechnology laboratories and their associated greenhouses – located at our Schlanstedt site in central Germany – are a hive of biotechnological endeavour. There we select phenotype and marker-supported sugar beet plants after exposing them to pathogens under standardized conditions. We also produce double haploid wheat lines using further crossings (wheat x corn) and embryo rescue techniques.

The result of our painstaking research is a stream of new, ever-improving sugar beet varieties such as Degas, Haydn and Gauguin: sugar beet varieties whose yields, sugar concentrations and resistance to diseases all make for more profitable sugar beet farming for you.
