Trial Fields

Dear agricultural producers,

The company for 20 years in a row and going organizes demonstration trial fields. That test hybrids and varieties chosen from Bulgarian and international selections.

If you wish you can make a visit of the seed production fields of the company to get a realistic picture of the condition of all varieties and to illustrate their qualities.

This year you can receive immediate information on more than 45 varieties of wheat and barley that are sown on the fields that we process.

Open Day of the Wheat

The open day is respected by dozens of farmers, representatives of branch companies of the country and leading experts from the State Agricultural Institute, headed by its Director prof. Ivan Kiriakov.

On these trial fields in 2016 were presented several new Bulgarian varieties that are being tested for the first or second year – 15/17, Rocky 1, Rocky 2, Chiara, Dragana and Lazarka. They are developed by prof. Ivan Panayotov, who attended the Day of Wheat and also by specialists from the Dobrudzha Agricultural Institute in General Toshevo. At the event were the director of the institution Ivan Kiriakov and prof. Nikolay Tzenov.

Open Day of the Wheat Over The Years

  • 2016 – The open day is respected by dozens of farmers, representatives of branch companies of the country, and leading experts from the State Agricultural Institute, headed by its Director prof. Ivan Kiriakov.
  • 2015 – Stefan Penev again hosts the “Day of wheat” event. On the trial fields in the village of Kroyach, Loznitsa, farmers in the region had the opportunity to learn about the various varieties of wheat, barley and rapeseed – Bulgarian and foreign selection. The trend of increasing foreign wheat varieties and barley in Bulgaria is growing. Bulgarian selection is much better and this year there will be Bulgarian wheat varieties that will give a better result from foreign selection. If you want to achieve a good result you should make technological varieties, not cultural varieaties of wheat.
  • 2014 – Stefan Penev for a consecutive year invites his colleagues from the region of the traditional Day of Wheat. In the trial fields, near the village of Kroyach, we presented 56 varieties of wheat and barley. For the first time a new approach has been used – the first 10 meters of each section are without any application of fungicides and other areas – with treatment. The aim is to show the genetic resistance of the varieties to pests and natural phenomena.
  • 2013 – Farmers from the region and the country took part in the Day of Wheat, which once again is organized Stefan Penev. On the trial fields near the village of Kroyach everyone managed to become familiar with 52 wheat varieties, 17 varieties of barley and two varieties of the recently popular einkorn (spelled).
