Our Field Technology
SPS Chile is striving to always improve our production management and technology from sowing through to harvest. We pay special attention to pollination of hybrid crops with our team constantly focusing on the quality aspect of seed production.
Stock seed is controlled as soon as it arrives in our laboratory. If the crop requires transplants for its production method we grow these under strict guidelines in our own greenhouses. First step is on special germination chambers and then they are moved into controlled climate greenhouses to grow ready for the field. For sowing we have our own precision machine.
In the case of brassica we have our own hot water treatment lab facilities. This method helps to assure that all the seedlings produced in our own nursery should begin free of black rot.
SPS CHILE owns its own plant nursery, where we have full control over the plant production, and never handling this delicate part of the production to a third party, securing our customers stockseed as well as the final stand.
Our production team has a lot of experience in greenhouse hand pollination as well as open field production. This in combination with selected growers gives trust to our customers.
