Old barns and a worn cow house have been renewed and transformed into a modern research and breeding facility now housing the Dutch DLF/Innoseeds breeding team.
The buildings still breathe the atmosphere of a century ago. In the living rooms there are still the bedsteads, chimneys and the door latches are original from wood. This is where Thieu Pustjens and his team consisting of 8 people now carry out their research activities to ensure a future delivery of high quality turf and forage grass varieties.
The Moerstraten research and breeding station is a vital element of the DLF-TRIFOLIUM Group’s strategy to consolidate all parts of the Dutch breeding programme at one place. The company has already been using the area around Moerstraten for breeding and multiplication of its varieties, and has very good experiences with the local soil quality and climate. Furthermore, the breeding station is only half an hour’s drive from DLF-TRIFOLIUM’s facilities in Kapelle and Vlijmen. Read more.
