As MAJSTRO SEEDS, we are enthusiastically dedicated to continuously improve on:
Create, with enthusiasm to the Vegetable seed business, new and unobvious varieties for Short Cucumber and Gherkin crops. By craftsmanship in Breeding, Production and Marketing
We highly believe in being a reliable seed provider for Short Cucumber and Gherkin varieties, by remaining an independent seed company
Before breeding varieties started in early 2000, already a lot of professional breeding experience was gained by the MAJSTRO SEEDS team in many vegetable crops and specifically Cucumber and Gherkin.
All experience and information in our programs enabled us to breed the best suitable varieties for our customers. Every year new lines and hybrids are tested in different climate-zones before we release them to the market.
A considerable amount of time and effort has been spent in keeping us up to date with the available breeding technology. Our research to date, combined with the results we have achieved, indicates that our current system meets the highest standards.
Besides breeding new varieties, the production of good quality seed is an important aspect of serving our customers. In order to secure availability our seed production is divided over different geographical locations in the world.
In order to produce seed, which is true to type, one must become knowledgeable in the reproductive process as well as the techniques used for maintenance selection, the genetic diversity and identity, seed harvesting, seed cleaning and seed storage.
MAJSTRO SEEDS can rely on many years of experience and partnerships around the world to assure good quality and sufficient seed supply every year.
We are committed to provide our customers with the highest quality seeds. This starts with the selection of growing areas and partners in carefully chosen locations of the world. These locations have been seriously tested for reliability over the years.
Systematically, we visit and monitor all production fields worldwide. All production is shipped to our facilities in the Netherlands and Tanzania where the quality of the seed is checked.
We test the quality and germination of every seed lot according the rules of the ISTA, International Seed Testing Association.
Apart from the ISTA tests, we run extra checks developed by professional laboratories where the quality and vigor of the seed is checked again before it is being released to our clients
Furthermore, official laboratories carry out additional tests to guarantee the quality of the seeds before it is conditioned and distributed.
