Welcome to Solynta

Solynta is a leading potato seed breeding company based in Wageningen (NL) which has developed an innovative technology for targeted breeding of one of the world’s most important staple crops, potatoes. Our award-winning hybrid true potato seeds will transform the way potatoes are grown and distributed worldwide.

Breeding Benefits

  • significant higher yields
  • stress resistant: adapted to climate change
  • resistant to diseases: less pesticides and fungicides
  • Higher quality: better taste and nutrition value
  • bio-based applications
  • manifold faster and goal directed

True Potato Seeds (TPS) are:

  • clean: no contamination with pathogens
  • easy logistics: transport, storage
  • fast mulitplication: millions of seeds in one season
  • 25 gram TPS instead of 2500 kilo seed-tubers

Complex potato genome further unveiled

Scientists from Solynta and Wageningen University & Research (WUR) have published the most complete genome sequence for potatoes to date. A unique aspect is that both sequence and plant material are made available for research (under specific conditions). This may in the future result in a potato that is more resistant to heat or drought or has a greater resistance to diseases.
