Nice weather, friendly hosts, enviable number of guests from Croatia and abroad, very good harvest results. What more can we desire from a Bc Institutes Field Day in Slavonia? Maybe the same next year.
We have visited our long-time co-operatives and friends, the Perković family in Star Topolje. The experimental field of 19 BC hybrids was presented. After harvesting weighing was performed. Some novelties such as Instructor, BC415 and BC482 were also presented.
How was it in Staro Topolje? Take a look at the photo gallery below.
As you may already know, the Bc Institute, d.d. has been present for many years in the Ukrainian market, but this year we finaly founded a branch office in Poltava, Ukraine. Last week the first “BC Maize Field Day” was held and it was attended by the President of the Management Board of the Bc Instituta, PhD. Ivica Ikić and Director of seed science Kristijan Puškarić, B.Sc.
In the photo gallery you can see the details of “BC Maize Field Day” in Ukraine.
From April 24 to April 27, we are presenting at this year’s agricultural fair Agrotech Agropars in Shiraz, Iran.
How is it in Asia? See it in gallery below.
Yesterday, 21.02.2018. in Brcko (Gastro center Bakery pot), An Annual gala presentation and presentation of the BC Institute, d.d. from Zagreb was held. Approximately 140 guests, predominantly agricultural producers from the East Sector, met in a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere with the introduction of the offer and the new BC hybrid series in 2018.
With the Bc Institute, you have the advantage!
From February 22 to 26, in Plovdiv, the AGRA International Agricultural Fair is held. AGRA is one of the largest trade shows in Eastern Europe, featuring the latest products from the agricultural industry. AGRA combines science with production, manufacturers with customers so that this opportunity could not pass without the Bc Institute. A series of meetings, seminars, conferences and presentations will be held at the fair, and visitors will be able to see agricultural machinery, irrigation systems, new seed varieties, etc. At the same time, BioAgra, an exhibition of organic agriculture will be held.
In the period from 8 to 10 November 2017 in Sv. Martin on Mura 10th International Congress “Plant Breeding, Seed and Nursery” and 5th Regional Days of Seeds were held. A total of 60 participants attended the conference with a total of 46 exhibitions. After welcoming the words from dr. Sc. Josip Haramija, prof. dr. sc. Krinoslava Zmaić, Dean of the Agricultural Faculty from Osijek and prof. Ph.D. The Government of the University of Osijek, Mr. Guberc, also addressed the Assistant Minister of Agriculture, Ph.D. Jelena Đugun who awarded the award “Gold Seed” that they won:
Bc Institut d.d.- hybrid PAJDAŠ
Agricultural Institute Osijek – Soya IKA
Croatian Society of Agronomists awarded “Golden Seed” award to Bc Institut d.d. in the category of “The most widespread maize hybrid in the Republic of Croatia in 2017” for Pajdaš hybrid. The recognition was received by the president of Bc Institut Management dr. sc. Ivica Ikić. This is Pajdaš hybrids 7th award in 8 years.
Kristijan Puškarić started the presentation with the topic “Situation in Croatian Seed and Plant Breeding”. Through an interesting lecture, a comparison of the number of sown hectares of cereals was made between 2014 and 2016, as well as a comparison of the quantity of certified seed. The conclusion is that the number of hectares sown with wheat, corn and barley decreases as well as the amount of certified seed, while soy and triticale are growing.
From the lectures of the HGK representative, the trend of increased import of food in the Republic of Croatia (2016- 14% higher than in 2012), as well as the trend of increased wheat exports, is noticed.
From the Semenars Association of Serbia, interesting lecture was given by Sandra Bogdanović, who pointed out some interesting facts:
Serbia owns 5.7 million hectares of agricultural land, of which 4.2 million hectares are cultivated
41% of the population lives in the rural area of Serbia
agriculture and the food industry in GDP participate with a high of 11.9%.
With the seed in neighboring Slovenia, Jozie Jerič met us, who emphasized the importance of the use of certified seed, as well as the fact that from Slovenia are the most abundant corn crops from 250 hybrids, 80 cereal grains, potatoes with 110 varieties on the market, and reduce the culture of 55 varieties.
A panel discussion on “New concepts of finishing and seed treatment” started with the presentation of Kristijan Puškarić who talked about the events at the annual meeting of the European Seminary Association held in Latvia. In the panel discussion, great emphasis was placed on banned nicotine-based treatment agents and seeking alternative solutions for them.
Bc Institut, d.d. he presented two works:
Harvest and quality of Bc winter wheat harvest in harvest in 2017 (exhibitor: Katarina Jukić)
Experimental BC hybrids for 2016 (exhibitor: Mirko Jukić)
Representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture, as in the previous years, were present only at the opening of the Congress as well as at the award of “Gold Seed” while remaining in the remaining lectures. Unfortunately, it can again be concluded that breeders, seedlings, scientists and producers present their experiences, problems, ideas for progress. However, those who should listen to them also on the basis of what they hear refute (change, improve) – not.

On Wednesday, October 25th, for the students of the sixth and the eighth grade and on October 30, 2017, for the pupils of the fifth and seventh grade of our school, a lecture on healthy eating was organized. The lecturer was dr.sc. Katarina Jukić from Bc Institute for Plant Breeding. Many disciples enjoyed the lecture because it shows us a completely new way of looking at everyday activity that is valuable in studying and thinking.
At the end of the lecture, several girls shared our healthy snack bags prepared by our lecturer and in which we all enjoyed it. The lecture was also the presentation of the eco-project “We Eat Responsibly” and the School Project “My Classroom Menu”. The main goal of the project is to encourage thinking – What do I eat?, How much waste do I produce? Who is and how did my food been produced? The first project is intended for Eco-Schools of the Republic of Croatia and aims to contribute to the mobilization of young people to take care of the preservation of nutritional values of food, to focus attention on the quantity and quality of the food they consume, water consumption, energy invested, biodiversity preservation and food shortage managment!
For more information on the project “We’re Responsible” visit their website: https://www.eko.lijepa-nasa.hr/eko-projekti-detaljno/mi-jedaju-odgovorno.
By the end of this week, students can take part in a prize winning quiz by answering questions on the topic of healthy eating. On Monday, under a big school break for students from 5th to 8th grade, we will draw the luckiest prize winners from the many accurately-filled questioneries provided by the lecturer and the Bc Institute.
For your own selfless contribution, we warmly thank you.
SUBJECT AWARDS BY THE BC INSTITUTE
On Monday, November 6th, during a snack under the big break in the dining room, among the students of the 5th-8th grade, the winners of the awards were presented by Mrs. Katarina Jukic from the Bc Institute who recently lectured on healthy eating. In the prize draw, only the lists that were solved completely correctly were taken into account, and there were so many. The awards secured for fifth, sixth, seventh and eight graders were very practical – cool bags, water bottles and t-shirts.
Congratulations to the winners and thank Mrs. Jukić and the ecologists for help.

Seed and Seedling Production and European Integrations was held in Šibenik. Within the framework of the convention, the Croatian Society of Agronomists awarded “Golden Seed” award to Bc Institut d.d. in the category of “The most widespread maize hybrid in the Republic of Croatia in 2012” for Pajdaš hybrid. The recognition was received by the president of Bc Institut Management dr. sc. Ivica Ikić. This is the fourth consecutive recognition.anje.
In order to succesfully start another season, Bc Institute has organized meetings with farmers in Čepin and Rugvica. On that occasion, in Čepin, around hundred of farmers got together from four Slavonian tribal states: Vukovarsko-srijemska, Osječko-baranjska, Brodsko-posavska and Požeško-slavonska, and in Rugvica about 200 farmers from ten tribal states from central and north Croatia. Farmers were presented with a new selection material of corn and grain crops, and with a strategy and methodology of setting production trials with Bc hybrids and cereal varieties.
Last year was set up 400 trials across the country
Last year, in cooperation with agricultural producers, Bc Institute organized almost 400 trials across Croatia, which required great effort on both sides because it is not enough just to set up a trial according to prescribed methodology, but it should also be controled, removed, weighed and measured to get a valid result.
Rewards and recognition
Care, work and effort of the best trials are being specially awarded by Bc Institute. During the meeting of agricultural producers, awards were given for the best yield of Bc maize hybrids, the best looking trials, for cooperation in setting up cereal crop trials and for longterm succesful collaboration.
