Strong Partners for Oilseed Rape

Succesful plant breeding companies merged over 40 years ago to form RAPOOL-RING Ltd.

The partners behind RAPOOL are mid-sized, non-listed private plant breeding companies. Together they can call on many years of extensive experience with rapeseed: a one-stop solution for research, breeding, seed production, seed treatment technology, distribution and agronomic consultancy. 

The success of RAPOOL has grown as a result of hard work, perseverance and a forward-looking approach to cultivation. The yield, disease resistance, agroclimatic adaption and the quality of the rapeseed varieties for edible oil, biodiesel and animal feed are among the milestones of our work. 

RAPOOL's strengths include the expertise and experience of our staff, as well as the work we do in a voluntary capacity to promote the cultivation of rapeseed. Our willingness to invest for the long term and our personal presence in the market has been the secret of our success: verifiable improvements in plant performance combined with top quality seeds and advice.

The particular ability of the RAPOOL enterprises for cooperation, their connection to agriculture, and their level of personal commitment have created something unique: a strong alliance of breeders who have gained the trust of the agricultural sector. This is something we will continue to build on in the future with all our passion as your trust is the endorsement that we value highest. 



The RAPOOL-Ring GmbH is a strong alliance of three German rapeseed breeders:


 Norddeutsche Pflanzenzucht Hans-Georg-Lembke KG


DSV - Deutsche Saatveredelung AG

W. von Borries-Eckendorf GmbH & Co. KG
