AMG-AGROSELECT COMERT RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTER:

THE MARKET LEADER

Agroselect Semences Research and Development Center has been successfully operating in the agricultural product market. The main area of our company’s activity is breeding, cultivating, and processing sunflower seeds conforming to the European standards.

Agroselect Semences is a part of AMG Holding group of companies. It should be mentioned that Agroselect Semences is the first private institution in the Republic of Moldova to work in this sphere. Asserting this, we refer directly to the main areas of our company’s activity and the advantages of the Centre, through which it has attained the high quality sunflower hybrids resistant to the most destructive factors, such as drought and various plant diseases.

It should be taken into account that that Agroselect Semences is a dynamic developing company creating its own traditions and employing highly qualified staff, which makes it work effective and stable.

One of the main activities of the Company is professional staff training. The skill level of the staff is an important factor which predetermines the competitiveness of any organization. The system of continuous staff training is focused on acquiring necessary knowledge and professional skills by the employees.

An entire “arsenal” of modern means of education, such as seminars, trainings, internships abroad, and computerized remote education programs, is used during the training. Thus, over the last three years, the number of the employees who have enhanced their qualification has been steadily increasing

Currently, Agroselect Semences Research and Development Center is an enterprise with the qualified personnel who perform the full cycle of work necessary for preparing the seeds – from the cultivation of seeds in the hybridization sites to processing them at our own factory equipped with modern facilities. High quality of the seeds is ensured due to their compliance with the latest technology used in the sphere of selected seed production. About 1000 hybrid combinations are yearly examined in various nurseries (screening tests, competitive tests). In the self-pollinated line breeding nurseries, more than 30 thousand self-pollination and crossings (transferring constant self-pollinated lines at CMS, RF, and developing disease resistance) are practiced.

An intensive research program aimed at breeding six types of hybrids, a new generation of higher quality, characterized by increased resistance to diseases and unfavorable climatic conditions such as drought, is being currently implemented. Besides, the hybrids will be characterized by higher crop capacity and oil content as well as the earlier ripening period.

The modern equipment installed at the processing plant allows thoroughly cleaning, sorting, and calibrating the seeds. The seeds are further treated with fungicides, insecticides, and growth stimulants. As a result, we offer for sale the seeds that have passed multi-level control, which is confirmed by the quality certificates of the Republic of Moldova and ISTA international certificates.

To make the results of our work more effective, Agroselect Semences Research and Development Center staff has established a fruitful collaboration with the institutions engaged in breeding sunflower seed hybrids in Serbia, France, Romania, and the USA.

In particular, we are happy to work with the renowned international institutions listed below:
