Sijačica ili snijeg?

U prethodnoj objavi smo napomenuli da se sjetva strnih žitarica može obaviti i nakon idealnih sjetvenih rokova pa bi bilo lijepo da vam to pokažemo i vlastitim primjerom.

Dok u Samoboru, Zaprešiću i zapadnom dijelu Zagreba pada snijeg u Rugvici traje sjetva makropokusa Bc strnih žitarica.

Vremenski uvjeti i stanje polja (vlaga u tlu) onemogućili su nas da makropokus u Rugvici ne posijemo ranije.

Da bi i idućeg ljeta pokus izgledao reprezentativno te da bi sav potencijal Bc sorata pokazao posjetiteljima predstojećeg dana polja sjetvu je bilo potrebno odraditi prije snijega.

Kako je to izgledalo ovog prohladnog jutra pogledajte i u kratkoj fotoreportaži.

Veliki pozdrav i zahvala našim vrijednim djelatnicama i djelatnicima Zavoda za strne žitarice Bc Instituta.

Pajdash – Golden seed of Croatia for the 10th time

On Thursday, November 12, the 13th International Congress “Plant Breeding, Seed and Nursery” was held in Osijek, organized by the Croatian Agronomic Society and the European Seed Association (ESA). For the first time, the congress went viral, it could be followed directly via the Internet via the Zoom application.

The prestigious “Golden Grain” award for the best-selling corn hybrid in the Republic of Croatia was won by Bc Institute’s hybrid “Pajdaš” again. This is also the jubilee since this is the tenth such recognition for this hybrid. The award was given by the Director of the Croatian Agency for Agriculture and Food Krunoslav Dugalić, Ph.D. who was the host of the 13th International Congress “Plant Breeding, Seed, and Nursery”. Kristijan Puškarić, the director of Seed Production received the plaque on behalf of the Bc Institute.

In the explanation of the recognition, it stands how there was 443,256.80 kg of certified Pajdaš seed hybrid in the last season of 2019/20. The total certified seed of maize seed was 3,420,111.35 kg which means that Pajdaš holds about 13 percent of the market share.

Thanking for the award and congratulating the winner in the soybean category at the award ceremony, he said:

“If my memory serves me well, this is the tenth “Golden seed” for Pajdaš and it may seem like a bombastic statement but it really proves that the work we do is worthwhile, that we – the domestic companies are competitive and that we have products that market recognizes and accepts. We hope and will do our best to remain so in the future.

Pajdaš has been the number 1 hybrid on the market all these years, it has a unique image that is composed of great adaptability to all agro-ecological conditions, stability in high results throughout years, as well as the grain quality and “its famous red color”.

New records! Yields over 20 t/ha!

On Saturday, 10th of October we attended a harvest and public weighing in Belajske Poljice near Karlovac.
Although we expected high yield results from one of our best test farmers Josip Spudic, we did not expect him to break the BC yield record for the highest yield result ever.
Not with one, but with three BC hybrids.

Here are the complete results from BC maize hybrid tests in Belajske.

Congratulations to Josip!!

And the award goes to…

For the ninth time in the last 10 years our maize hybrid “Pajdaš” is the winner of the prestigious award “Golden seed” for the best selling maize hybrid in Croatia.

The 12th International meeting for “Plant breeding, seed, and nursery production” is being held from 6th to 8th of November 2019 at the hotel “Sol Garden Istra” in Umag, Croatia in the organization of “Croatian Society of Agronomists” and the “European Seed Association (ESA)”.

Proud to hear the happy news!

Bc Institute on Comunication days in Rovinj!

The “Days of Communication” held in Hotel Lone in the period 28 to 31 March 2019, which made Rovinj the world’s communications industry center. Domestic and foreign lecturers had the opportunity to discuss and share their knowledge and experience on the latest trends and innovations in market communication. Days of communication have positioned Croatia on the world communication scene, thus gaining recognition. Part of this beautiful story was also the Bc Institute, d.d. who worked in close cooperation with the agency Undabot d.o.o., announced its mobile application Bc Agronaut for the MIXX prize in the category of Best Mobile App – the best mobile application in the Republic of Croatia.

The MIXX competition was created under the international IAB license and within it are awarded prizes to the best digital campaigns and digital tools / platforms in the field of market communications. Evaluation criteria are creativity, strategy, performance and use of the media and achieved results. We are extremely proud of the fact that we are, as a scientific research institute, included in the finals of this prestigious competition and that Bc Agronaut is positioned in the best four best mobile applications in the Republic of Croatia in 2019. If we note that a close struggle for a flattering title ultimately led to banking and telecommunications giants and a multinational beer producer, our participation in the finals is even more impressive and bigger. It’s just a proof that we are on the right path giving us the wind in the back to continue in the same direction.

On this occasion, we would like to thank our Undabot d.o.o. which has all our desires, ideas and ideas realized. Without their suggestions and suggestions Bc Agronaut would not be what it is today – finalist MIXX awards. The launch of Bc Agronaut was successful and marks a new start. Stronger has confirmed and convinced of the quality of our mobile app We invite you to make sure that you also get free download on Google Play or iTunes.
