Our cereal varieties


Wheat, along with maize and to a lesser extent rice, is one of the world’s most important cereal species. Although there is a huge number of different wheat species, it is mostly bread wheat and to a lesser extent durum wheat (durum) that are being cultivated. Spelt wheat (spelt), also known as “ancient” wheat species, has a regional significance, especially in Europe. The typical “old world wheat species” einkorn and emmer play a subordinate role.

Spelt wheat (spelt)


Spelt wheat is the most popular species of the “ancient cereals” in Germany. It is cultivated in all regions, with a focus on Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. The spelt wheat spikelets are harvested and then dehulled before grinding. New varieties convince with their leaf-health and straw stability. Baked goods are enhanced by the nutty flavour of the spelt wheat flour.

The sales and distribution of our spelt wheat varieties is carried out by Saaten-Union and its subsidiaries in Germany and abroad.

Durum wheat (durum)


Durum wheat (durum) is the main ingredient of the widely popular noodles. It’s due to durum wheat that they remain crispy (al dente) even after being cooked. Pasta made from German semolia is increasingly in demand by retailers. This is one of the reasons why the cultivation of spring and winter durum has increased during the past thirty years. Durum wheat is considered to be quite demanding. For this reason it should be primarily cultivated at favourable locations, in order to ensure its quality at the time of harvest.

The sales and distribution of our durum wheat varieties is carried out by Saaten-Union and its subsidiaries in Germany and abroad.

Emmer


The cultivation of emmer largely resembles the cultivation of spelt wheat. However, emmer copes quite well with less favourable soils and ends up being easily manageable in practice. Its plant height and straw stability are comparable to older spelt varieties. Emmer is also harvested with its glumes.

Einkorn


Einkorn is both the most delicate and the most resistant cereal among the old world grains. It copes well with poor and difficult soils. This old world grain has a very slow youth development and a very high tillering at the same time. Einkorn differs from bread wheat in two aspects: Its yield consists of a high amount of grains with a low kernel weight. Einkorn is also harvested with its glumes.
