Lantmännen SW Seed – Breeding the varieties of tomorrow
For more than 25 years, Lantmännen SW Seed and its predecessor have been purpose-breeding Salix. This has led to the creation of new varieties with very high yield and improved disease resistance. SalixEnergi provides feedback to Lantmännen SW Seed’s plant breeders on how the varieties perform in practice during handling, growing, incineration, etc. This allows future varieties to be tailored to market requirements
Planting of willow is a long term investment and it is most important that the long term growth potential and the disease resistance have been proved scientifically and in practice. When you chose SW willow varieties you can be sure that you will get tested varieties.
