Only one fifth of this year’s wheat harvest originates from controlled, metal sealed seeds

Official data prove that metal sealed seeds were sown only on 20 percent of Hungary’s agricultural land this year – this average is 50 percent in Western Europe. László Szilágyi, managing director of Cereal Research Nonprofit Kft. in Szeged told our magazine that officially authorised, metal sealed seeds comply with the strictest quality regulations and sowing them costs only HUF 20,000/hectare, which is only 10 percent of wheat’s production costs. He added that if farmers sow their own cereal yield the next year, the next harvest will be worse in both quality and quantity; re-sowing also requires 15-25 percent more seed
