With varieties like ALEXIS, SCARLETT and BARKE, Saatzucht Breun can look back on a successful spring barley breeding. For our current breeding it is challenging to build on those past successes. With an early selection, a high genetic variability and a rapid generation cycling, we could internationally place varieties like SUNSHINE, FATIMA and ELLINOR and we are now able to set new standards in malting barley quality with our Flexi-Malt®-varieties AVALON, LEANDRA and LEXY.Dr. Franziska Wespel, Breeder Saatzucht Breun (2012 – 09/23)
Due to the difficult soil conditions Herzogenaurach is a very selective breeding location for winter wheat. The varieties bred here are therefore characterized by outstanding adaptability to a wide range of environmental conditions. This, and the large genetic diversity of the breeding material have already led to market-leading varieties such as JB Asano, JB Diego and Ellvis in various European countries. Saatzucht Breun ist currently successful with INFORMER in Germany, Northern Europe and the Baltic States.Dr. Ludwig Ramgraber, Breeder Saatzucht Breun
Saatzucht Breun breeds 2- and 6-row winter barley. In the past the company has been very successful with 2-row malting types like Regina and Vanessa. Today, Saatzucht Breun also breeds two-row and multi-row feed barley for the European market. New high-performance varieties from these programs are, for example, VALERIE, which has been successfully introduced in various European countries, and AMANDINE in France. In addition, there is the new multi-row variety WINNIE.Dr. Heidi Jaiser, Breeder Saatzucht Breun
