The seed quality starts from the field: for each variety we choose the field with adequate micro-climate, botanical isolation and latitude. The seed multiplication is managed by our technical staff, that helps the growers in each stage, giving instructions on soil preparation, fertilization, anti-parasitic treatments, male line destruction (if requested), harvesting, etc.
We provide our growers with special machineries and equipment (sowing, transplanting and threshing machines, and drying facilities). We take care of nicking adjustment and off types epuration with our technical staff.
C.A.C. offers one of the biggest European cleaning seed facility, with a working capacity of 12.000 tons of seed per year, using up to 12 different seed processing lines.
Thanks to continuous investments in the most advanced technologies and to the experience of our professional staff we can adjust each cleaning process to the customer’s requirements and to the seed lot conditions.
