Semagri, high quality starch varieties

Semagri is a supplier of starch monopoly varieties in all potato starch-growing regions. These varieties have been admitted to cultivation in the TPM regions in the Netherlands. On a large number of trial and demo fields in all starch-counting countries, our varieties and new numbers are compared with the existing standard varieties. New numbers are only ranked by us if they have sufficient potential for the relevant growing regions. Any resistances of the numbers are determined by container examinations at renowned laboratories.

The cooperation with Dutch growers and foreign breeding companies ensures that there will always be new varieties with high starch yields, the right resistances in the field of potato fatigue, wart disease, Phytophthora, virus, drought and Altenaria. The storability of the varieties is also an important aspect. The promising hybrids are being tested on various test fields in all European starch-producing countries. The suitability for processing into flakes and granules is researched, as is the percentage of protein in our varieties.
