Modern variety for nematode control


  • Resistance level 2 in official tests - up to 90% reduction of Beet Cyst Nematodes
  • Fast initial development and late flowering for long standing periods with extensive nematode control
  • As an important part in nematode management, KATINA contributes to safe the sugar beet yield in intensive sugar beet cultivation regions
  • Binds valuable nutrients in the topsoil and prevents their leaching - ideal in water protection areas
  • Leafy growth and intensive root system increase the amount of organic matter which is used to promote soil life
