Experiments with sowing pelleted seeds


In 2016, further optimization of the Taraxacum agronomy were undertaken in Belgium, The Netherlands and Kazachstan. We experimented with sowing pelleted seeds on ridges and flat fields. A wide range of herbicides were tested for use in taraxacum fields in order to control weeds during germination and spring growth of taraxacum. We now have herbicides and their optimal doses determined for further optimization of the taraxacum agronomy. We installed in Belgium and The Netherlands over 2 hectares of taraxacum  in order to scale-up the production of natural rubber derived from Taraxacum koksaghyz.
