Our company has been involved in research and development projects for the past 25 years.
Our winning tenders:
Research and development project in regards to new tree breeding methodologies and fertilization procedures with the aim of significantly increasing the yield and wood quality in forestry plantations with new, fast growing varieties. Perspective: When it comes to Black Locust research, there are no other research programmes which are looking into manure and fertilizer variations
Research and development in regards to maximizing high quality black locust honey production as well as high wood yield with the aim of propagating black locust varieties with outstanding and delayed flowering. Perspective: Delaying and enriching the flowering period in order to avoid losses in nectar yield due to inconvenient weather conditions
“The development of a seed cultivation plantation and a production methodology with high-yielding seed-bearing fast growing Turbo acacia tribal clones to produce propagating material for energy crops and afforestation projects” Perspective: Black Locust seed cultivation plantation is unique in its quality (the plus trees were selected based on offspring test results) with expected yield of 50M seedlings by next year. Second generation offspring tests have also commenced.
Developing the new, vegetative propagation methodology for the outstandingly fast growing Black Locust ’Turbo Obelisk’ variety group as well as devising the most suitable planting model.
“Development of planting and propagating material production system with a new sifting technology significantly improving the energy balance of summer and shoulder plantations”, „Ültetvény létesítési és szaporítóanyag termesztési rendszer kidolgozása nyár- és fűz ültetvények energiamérlegét jelentősen javító új fektetett dugványozási technológiával”. Perspective: Developed specifically for short rotation wood chip production.
Research of renewable energy with biotech- microhorising technologies and the incorporation of new varieties in energy plantations in Hungary.
SOS Klíma (2008-2010)
The utilization of extremist soils with an energy plantations concept with new, fast growing varieties (‘Turbo’ Black Locust’, White Willow ‘Express’). The main aim of the SOS KLÍMA project was to research the utilization of extreme dry soil conditions (limited precipitation, drought and bad soil quality) as well as very wet, flooded areas with inland water. The aim was the execution of industrial wood production plantations and short rotation energy plantations.
The production of seedlings with a microhorising application (locust, oaks, hazel, conifers) followed by the microhorising of our vegetatively propagated black locust varieties (‘Turbo’ Black Locust and state recognized hazel varieties). Microhorised seedlings are ideal for expanding the varieties in the nursery. State recognized, certified microhorised seedlings nursed in pots represent a valuable product on the market.
