in seed field. The company has grown quickly within the last years, and has achieved today the position of Italian leader in the production and trade of vegetable seeds. The activity of SUBA & UNICO production is basically divided in two parts: Management of multiplication contracts, even on a large scale, on behalf of the largest seed companies in the world, with their own stockseeds or with the ones supplied from the Customers Own production of a wide range of vegetable seeds varieties, using stockseeds whose varietal purity is controlled, in order to be able to satisfy the requirements of their customers all over the world. SUBA & UNICO makes use of services supplied by production centers located both in Italy and abroad, which are provided with technologically advanced structures and equipments, allowing a high-standard level in seeds production. Briefly, the production is obtained by: Multiplication of highly selected stockseeds, preserved and improved in varietal purity. Location of best soils in areas with the most suitable climatic conditions, in collaboration with experienced farmers and using the most advanced techniques. Special attention is paid to cultivations isolation, in order to avoid an undesirable pollination by other varieties. Steady supervision operated by a technically qualified staff during the entire vegetative cycle, from sowing to harvest, advising the farmers about the techniques to be used in the various steps, as weedkilling procedures, antiparasitic treatment, threshing and harvesting. Accurate selection using the most modern machines, which are able to get a very high purity, by removing foreign bodies as well as weed-seeds. On request, it is even possible to execute the sizing and the optical selection of the seed (based on seed color) with particularly sophisticated machines. Accurate tests, before shipping, for germination, specific purity (especially by detecting the presence of weed seeds) and presence of seed-transmissible diseases. Tests are carried out either by own laboratories, the Analysis Laboratory of the Agrarian Faculty of Bolognas University and the National Agency Elected Seeds (E.N.S.E.) of Tavazzano (Milan). An further control about the varietal feutures, is carried out by placing, every year, several test-demonstratives field. All produced seeds are sowed in several periods of the year and compared with varieties of national and foreign origin, in order to maintain an high varietal standard and to control the sanitary condition of the plants; SUBA & UNICO s trial fields are at disposal of customers for guided visits.
