Top Performers in every category

July 2015

At PANNAR we consider risk management and sustainable farming to be of cardinal importance. For that reason all our products are subjected to a rigorous evaluation programme before any cultivar is marketed. Aspects such as good yield performance, stability over seasons and area adaptability are given a great deal of attention. The fruits of this programme are proven by the results of the PANNAR crop package in the ARC national trials. We are very proud to have achieved first place in all crop categories.
