Numerous years of intensive breeding work are required to achieve the goal of securing open-pollinated crops for all cultivated plants. From the outset, ReinSaat has committed itself to the biodynamic cultivation of vegetable crops. The permanent focal point of our work is to develop regionally adapted, open-pollinated cultivated plants and to make them available for commercial cultivation as well as amateur vegetable growers.
The selection in respect of shape, colour, taste, flavour and vitality is a significant breeding method. Harvest security, marketable quality, manufacturing quality, transportability and storage ability are equally weighted and incorporated in the breeding activities.
Together with propagation companies from all over Austria and other European partners, the diversity of open-pollinated varieties is constantly further developed at the headquarters of ReinSaat and the propagation farms - participative plant breeding.
Best seed quality for consumers, commercial and amateur vegetable growers is ensured in accordance with the following breeding objectives:
Following these basic principles ReinSaat has defined the cornerstones of its corporate philosophy:
Being aware of the major challenges concerning seed breeding in the future, the team of ReinSaat works daily with great quality commitment in the implementation of these objectives.
