Comparison Trial 2021

Every year in Spring wir produce pots of our varieties, varieties from other breeders and interesting new results from our breeding side by side in our breeding department. There are many different crops, and well known varieties and new experimentals shine next to each other. In this Comparison Trial we observe and document closely, discuss a lot and decide on the next steps of the breeding results and our assortment.

The next step will be, that breeding results that combine very interesting and good characteristics are placed in pots in the open field and further observed with regard to their summer performance.

We are looking forward to showing you this field trial, our assortment and especially the novelties at our open days on 19 and 20 June 2021!


Soil tests

The coldest weeks are behind us, the goods for the main season in April and May are mostly potted. Now it is important to choose the right crop and also to keep an eye on the nutritional status. Soil analyses are a good way to check the fertilization that has already taken place and to take countermeasures if necessary. Our diagnostic laboratory pac® biotec is the new home of the Saxon Special Laboratory for Horticultural Soils since October 2020 and is happy to examine your substrate sample as well!

  • The basic analysis includes pH, salinity, volume weight, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.
  • In addition, a magnesium and chloride determination, as well as a determination of the organic substance (humus) are also offered.
  • Upon request, we evaluate their soil samples and provide fertilizer recommendations.

This way you know if everything is fine - the plants optimally supplied and for the environment as little impact as possible.

Your contact person and contact for sending in the soil samples is Dr. Eberle, 0049 35248 399140,
