Spring wheat

Nordic Seed has it's own breeding of spring wheat, which primarily takes place at "Sofiehøj" on Lolland and in colloration with Hankkija in Finland.

 

The spring wheat breeding is primarily for the Finnish marked, where they have 185000 hectares in 2020. 


The wheat varieties are selected under Danish and Finnish conditions, and the first lines from our own breeding was tested in the Danish and Finnish farmer union trials in 2019. 


Spring wheat for the Danish market is grown primarily for the production of bread grain. At the Finnish market we primarily look for earliness and backing quality. 


Nordic Seed represents spring wheat varieties from the leading breeders in Europe, and focuses strongly on selecting varieties with high resistance to leaf diseases, especially yellow rust.
