Deutsche Saatveredelung AG (DSV)


The DSV quality laboratory is the first non-governmental laboratory in Germany to receive ISTA accreditation for oilseed rape

In the spring of 2019, the quality laboratory of the plant breeding company Deutsche Saatveredelung AG which is headquartered in Lippstadt, Germany, was the first German laboratory of a commercial company to receive accreditation for oilseed rape by the International Seed Testing Association (ISTA). DSV will use this qualification to support the quality of their international seed business.

Species-rich cover crop mixtures render the main crop more efficient and improve the water balance

Even in dry years non-winter hardy cover crops do not compete for water with the subsequent main crop and even improve the soil water balance. This is a result of the German Federal research project "CATCHY".

Crop rotation benefits from cover crops

Extreme years like 2018 show that main crops suffer greatly in adverse weather conditions. The effects on the plants cannot be prevented, but cover crops are a helpful instrument for obtaining resistant plant populations. This is demonstrated by studies from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) CATCHY project.

Never again barley yellow dwarf virus: the first resistant multi-rowed winter barley approved for the German Market

Barley yellow dwarf virus has spread all over the world and is one of the viruses with the most economically devastating effects in cereal-growing. Until now it could be countered only by chemical methods or limited agricultural measures. Now Deutsche Saatveredelung AG (DSV) has brought the first resistant multi-rowed winter barley with German approval from its in-house breeding programme on to the German market.

The secret is in the mixture

There are many different lawn blends in the market and usually the composition of a mixture is functional. Different species occur as a main component in a mixture depending on the requirements of the lawn.
