Cereals & oilseeds

We grow many types of cereals and oilseeds across the world. In hectares, these take up the majority of our production area.

We constantly seek to improve our farming systems and diversify our crop rotations, which include using cover crops between our main cereal and oilseed crops.

Barley


ARGENTINA  |  AUSTRALIA  |  LATVIA  |  LITHUANIA  |  ROMANIA  |  URUGUAY

Barley is one of the most important cereal crops worldwide. Highly versatile, barley adapts to a wide variety of climates and can provide protection to the soil during winter.  

We mainly grow high quality malt barley varieties to be used for beer production. We focus on our crops genetic makeup, the environmental conditions and good farming practices. From experience, we know this makes a real difference in the final product.

We produce barley in Romania, Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, Latvia and Lithuania. 

 

Canola


ARGENTINA  |  AUSTRALIA  |  LATVIA  |  LITHUANIA  |  ROMANIA  |  URUGUAY

Canola is one of the most popular sources for edible plant oils. Of all oils, canola has the lowest content of saturated fats. Canola is also rich in linoleic acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6, which help lower cholesterol.

Besides being used in oil production, canola has many other uses, from animal feed to biofuels.

We grow canola in Argentina, Australia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania and Uruguay.

 

Corn


ARGENTINA  |  ROMANIA  |  URUGUAY

Corn is one of the most important crops for both human and animal nutrition worldwide.

Due to its high protein content, corn is widely used as one of the basic elements of livestock feed. For humans, corn flour is one of the most important by-products. Loaded with proteins and fibre, it is gluten-free and easy to digest.

We produce corn in Argentina, Uruguay and Romania. 

 

Oats


LATVIA  |  URUGUAY

Oats are a cereal grown for its edible grains. The majority of oat production is used as forage for livestock, but it can also be used to produce grain for flour and oatmeal. Oats are rich in fibre and good for the digestive system, and the demand for oats for human consumption is growing.

Including oats in the crop rotation also has many positive effects. Oats help to suppress weeds, prevent erosion and absorb excess nutrients from the soils.

Our farms in Latvia and Uruguay have excellent conditions for growing oats, as oats thrive in temperate, cool climates.

 

Rye


LATVIA  |  LITHUANIA

Rye is popular for its climatic resistance and easy establishment.

Besides producing grain and forage, rye is often used as a cover crop due to its tolerance to low temperatures. During winter, rye protects the soil from erosion and provides organic matter to the topsoil. 

Well suited to the climate of the Baltic region, we grow rye in Latvia and Lithuania.

 

Sorghum


ARGENTINA  |  ROMANIA  |  URUGUAY

Sorghum is a small grain cereal with a great resistance to drought and a high nutrient efficiency.

Although most sorghum is produced for animal feed, it can also be part of the human diet, especially in the warmer climates. Sorghum is a good energy source due to its high starch composition and contains more iron than any other cereal.

We produce sorghum in Argentina, Romania and Uruguay.

 

Soya


ARGENTINA  |  ROMANIA  |  URUGUAY

Soya is a highly valued crop for its rich protein and oil content. Soya has a long list of uses and by-products and is one of the most important agricultural products worldwide.

Our soya is used for the production of several products for human consumption such as edible oils, soya milk or tofu, as well as protein-rich feed for animals.

Our minimum tillage practises allow us to produce a higher quality soya, as we leave the plant material from the previous harvest to naturally decompose and provide additional organic matter to the soils.

We grow soya in Argentina, Uruguay and Romania.

 

Sunflower


ARGENTINA  |  ROMANIA

Our sunflowers are mainly used to produce sunflower oil and feed.

Compared to canola, sunflowers have a higher oil content, they require less fertiliser and have fewer diseases and problems with pests. Sunflowers are also a good competitor against weeds with their strong growth and well-developed root system.

We produce sunflowers in Romania and Argentina.

 

Wheat


ARGENTINA  |  AUSTRALIA  |  LATVIA  |  LITHUANIA  |  ROMANIA  |  URUGUAY

Wheat is one of the most important food grain source for humans, and as a crop, it has played a central role in the development of civilisation.

When growing wheat some of the main considerations are the protein content of the grain, drop count and starch content. The desired wheat quality depends on the buyer's specifications; if the grain is to be used for feed or for baking flour.

We grow high quality wheat in Argentina, Uruguay, Australia, Latvia, Lithuania and Romania.
