Deutsche Saatveredelung AG (DSV)

Winter oilseed rape bred by DSV

Success as a result of innovation and tradition

We have been part of the success of oilseed rape (OSR) breeding in Europe since the 1960s, and have contributed substantially to the innovations that have been essential for the expansion of the crop. While OSR breeding technology has evolved over the decades, the goal is still the same: to deliver improved varieties for our customers’ success. We offer a wide range of varieties to meet the needs of farmers all over Europe and beyond. Our European testing network ensures that we are able to identify the varieties from our global portfolio that are the optimum fit for local conditions anywhere.

Advantage of hybrids
We have focused strongly on hybrid breeding for over 10 years. Hybrids achieve better yields than conventional varieties due to the heterosis effect, and more importantly, hybrid yields are more stable because they suffer less from abiotic stress.

International distribution
Depending on the country, our varieties are distributed under DSV or RAPOOL brand.
