KWS

Production Areas

The main KWS production sites for sugar beet seed for the European markets are South-West France (Lot et Garonne) and Northern Italy (Emilia Romagna).

Both regions offer excellent conditions for the production of high quality-seed: favourable climatic conditions during winter for the vegetative development, flowering and ripening of the plants, and farms with fertile soils, equipped with irrigation systems and drying systems.

The seed production centres KWS -France at Buzet, and KWS Italia at Forli, work with and give advice to around 500 production farmers concerning all the steps of seed production, in order to keep the production technique precisely adapted to the different KWS varieties.
