Forage seed processing factory and trading company
Tuesday 25.06.2019, 12.50 - 18.30
We will visit the seed processing and mixing factory of UFA-Samen , one of the Swiss leading providers of forage crop seeds. We get insight into the production of a large palette of grassland seed mixtures, from wild flower mixtures for extensive meadows to intensive mixtures for temporary leys and turfs. After a half-hour bus trip, the excursion will start on a farm engaged in the production of seeds of various wild flowers. We will then visit the nearby facilities of UFA-Samen (including seed testing lab and gene bank) in Winterthur Niderfeld. In the centre of Winterthur, we will tour the 1,5 ha show garden and research site, before heading back to Zürich.
