ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION TO IMPROVE
YOUR SPINACH SEED PRODUCTION?
may want to try INCOTECís SDR.
Seed companies are constantly faced
with matching the quality of the seed they produce with market
Seed companies are looking for ways to
reduce production costs while maintaining the quality of the
seed they produce and increasing seed production yield per
To achieve these goals, seed companies
are striving to produce their seed under the best possible seed
A breeder can
develop the best parent lines, but if the parent lines do not
perform at an optimal level during seed production, optimal seed
quality will not be reached.
INCOTEC therefore initiated research to assist seed companies
improve their production of spinach seed. We are calling this
process SDR - Shorter Daylength
The SDR process that we developed will
synchronize the flowering of basic seed in spinach seed
treating the female line with SDR, the female line will
germinate faster and more uniform. Bolting should occur earlier
(approx. 7 days earlier compared to untreated seed).
trials it has been observed that the yield per hectare after SDR
treatment of the female line increased by as much as 10%,
depending on climatical conditions.
If your company is facing seed production issues as described
above and would like methods to improve seed production of
spinach, we encourage you to test INCOTECís SDR treatment on
your genetic material.
As in most
cases when adding value to seed, an SDR trial production is
recommended. Field results will give an indication on how
effective the SDR treatment may be on your speicific parent
