In 2002 KWS SAAT AG took a conventional arable farm on lease and converted it to organic farming. Management is done by the daughter company KWS Klostergut Wiebrechtshausen GmbH. Due to EC-regulation 2091/92 and additionally to the guidelines of Naturland farming is performed.
The farm is aimed to produce seed (cereal, potato). Furthermore varieties and lines of different crops of the KWS group are tested on their suitability in organic farming. A specific breeding program for organic corn varieties is running.
Wiebrechtshausen is a location of the official variety trials in Lower Saxony.
The farm is involved in permanent investigations on seed treatment of various crops (cereals, corn, sugar beet) and in a two-years program on organic sugar beet growing.
