Organic and conventional farming of food crops is our core business.
KTG Agrar SE cultivates over 46.000 hectares of farmland for organic and conventional farming of food crops.
Back in 1994, we started to grow organic produce on 300 hectares. Since then, the KTG Group has evolved step by step from an organic produce pioneer into one of Europe’s largest agricultural companies.
We have successfully built up new business segments such as conventional farming and biogas production and even extended our value chain into the food retail sector. Maximum quality and sustainability are integral elements of our corporate philosophy. And we have stayed true to our roots – the KTG Group stands for modern, innovative and, above all, sustainable farming.
Today, we cultivate over , hectares of land. Finding good farmland is becoming increasingly difficult. And often there is a lack of young farmers. percent of the farmers are older than years. KTG is a much sought-after partner, providing farmers with professional advice on succession planning and administrative aspects.
