The “wonder bean”

Pioneer in a growth market

Building on our know-how, we act as a pioneer in the successful cultivation of non-GM soya.

For decades, soybeans have been used in the food and fodder industries as a valuable source of protein. Annual soya imports to the EU exceed 30 million tons – a stark contrast to the EU output of just 1.1 million tons.

The growing demand for GMO-free food has only heightened this contrast, as European supply is insufficient to cover the demand.

KTG identified the potential of non-GM soya at an early stage and made substantial investments in the cultivation of GMO-free soybeans. Following on from several initial test fields in 2011, the cultivation area was expanded successively and the company gained more expertise. In 2014, the Group cultivated soybeans on a total site of over 6.500 hectares, making it the largest producer of non-GM soya in Western Europe.

Nach ersten Testflächen 2011 wurde die Anbaufläche von gentechnikfreiem Soja der KTG sukzessive ausgeweitet und Know-how aufgebaut.

Soybeans, especially non-GM ones, are currently the most profitable crop. Due to the high demand for European soya and the scarce supply, prices are set to stay at a high level. Soybeans therefore play a strategic role in KTG’s crop rotation policy and will make an important contribution to increasing the profitability of the Group’s farming segment in the years ahead. Over the past years, KTG Agrar has optimised the cultivation of soya in Central Europe through tests of different cultures, cultivation progress and new processing techniques.

In the cultivation plans, a special focus was placed on the highprice organic segment. The fact that the soybeans are processed in KTG’s own oil mill in Anklam allows the company to generate important synergies and to add most of the value within the KTG Group. Professionally negotiated supply contracts secure attractive sales prices for the non-refined soybeans.
