WE ARE BETASEED

Betaseed is a new supplier of sugar beet seed to the UK market. As a modern alternative, we focus on what is essential. Our aim is to provide a clearly structured range of products in exceptional quality and with high-yielding sugar beet crops.

WHERE DO WE COME FROM?

Betaseed is headquartered in Minnesota, USA. We have been developing highly successful varieties for the North American market for over 40 years. With a combination of effective disease tolerance and high yield potential, we have set standards in the US.The result of our success is such that Betaseed has been the undisputed market leader in North America for over ten years. We also draw on this expertise in order to develop varieties suited to other cultivation regions around the world.

 

 

 

WHAT IS OUR MISSION?

The requirements of sugar beet cultivation are on the rise with regard to disease resistance and efficiency. We make it our business to recognise farmers' growing requirements early on and to enable forward-looking breeding. For this reason, Betaseed invests 15% of its annual turnover in the research and development of high-performing sugar beet varieties with multiple tolerances.

One-third of our staff members work towards these goals in our US-based cultivation centres in Shakopee, Moorhead and Kimberly.

HOW CAN YOU BENEFIT?

Around 1.2 million acres of cultivation area in North America are divided into 11 regions spanning the entire continent. This means that our seeds need to be able to stand up to a wide range of cultivation conditions, weather requirements, soil types, diseases and pests.

There are similar requirements for sugar beet cultivation in many other areas around the world. We therefore draw on our experience in order to develop appropriate varieties for these regions, too.

For example in UK, the dominant diseases and pests include Rhizomania, Cercospora, Rhizoctonia solani and beet cyst nematode (BCN). All four have a major economic impact and are well known in North America as well. As a result, our cultivation centres in Shakopee and Kimberly conduct tests and develop varieties that are tolerant to these diseases and pests.

With seeds from Betaseed, you can bank on high beet and sugar yields. Put your trust in our expertise and speak to one of our local employees/partners in UK.
