Welcome to KWS UK’s sugarbeet variety information.  Please feel free to browse our variety information and we hope the information is useful for you.

We have three new varieties for drilling in 2017, Darnella KWS, the highest yielding variety with rhizomania resistance. Alisha KWS, also rhizomania resistant it brings the highest sugar content combined with particularly high total sugar yield, efficient high yields. Lastly we have Cantona KWS which is probably the best variety in the UK bringing the 2nd highest yields, some of the lowest bolting and is also BCN tolerant. A significant step forward in breeding progress.

These new varieties complement our existing varieties which you will know already, the continual high performing Sabatina KWS with high yields and good bolting, Salamanca KWS, our high performing established BCN variety, Leesha KWS and also the AYRP rhizomania tolerant variety Sandra KWS.
