Seed production

The offer of Semenarna Ljubljana is based on its own organised seed production:

  • Semenarna Ljubljana varieties,
  • Slovenian varieties and
  • landraces.

Production of basic onion seed at the Ptuj selection centre.

The basic activity of production is the organisation and production of seeds for the company's own needs and for exportation. Production takes place in areas possessing the most suitable climate and soil conditions which is a prerequisite for reaching high yields and producing high-quality seeds. The majority of preservation varieties in Slovenia are maintained at Semenarna Ljubljana in Ptuj. Mercantile and seed material is produced by our cooperants.

We are primarily expanding our production to areas where Semenarna Ljubljana has subsidiary companies; however, production is also organised in areas providing a stable and quality harvest.
