Seed Varieties Strube UK


Haydn sugar beet is a commercially fully proven and reliable Rhizomania-resistant sugar beet variety that delivers strong yields, good sugar contents and the some of the lowest bolting available from both early and normal sowings.

Haydn sugar beet seed is the best selling variety on the Recommended List over the last 10 years.

Since its initial Recommendation five years ago, Haydn has consistently provided all the characteristics that help to deliver a dependable and profitable high-value sugar beet crop. Add to this: excellent establishment and large healthy tops, that cover the ground quickly, and you have a special and handsome variety.



Degas sugar beet, first Recommended in January 2017, is a resilient and adaptable Rhizomania tolerant variety which makes up nearly 10% of the 2018 UK National crop. With high yields and top 2 sugar content, Degas offers an excellent, versatile agronomic package which includes good establishment, good ground cover and good bolting resistance from drillings after the 15th March.

Among the most popular varieties in UK fields over the last couple of years, Degas is a complementary variety to Haydn with high yield, high sugar content and respectable low bolting from normal sowings, a good replacement for those that liked our variety Pasteur.



Gauguin sugar beet offers high yields, a high level of tolerance to Beet Cyst Nematodes (BCN), resistance to Rhizomania and very low bolting – the lowest early-sown bolting of all the BCN tolerant varieties on the 2020 Recommended List.

Gauguin can be drilled as early as sensibly practicable, having demonstrated early-sown bolting lower even than Haydn in three years of trials. With excellent establishment and vigorous growth, Gauguin will help you to win the race to 12 true leaves by early May to protect against aphids.
