Development and Research

Agriculture

Südobst Stegersbach supports research and development activities and cooperates with the following education facilities:

  • Higher Federal Education and Research Institute
    for Horticulture, Schönbrunn
  • University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna
  • ReinSaat KG

Through such cooperation, it has been possible to double the cultivation area specifically for plantations of bell peppers and pepperoni peppers, and to cultivate various special varieties on open fields including piri piri, kusburnu, turunku spiral, de cayenne, and orange and yellow cherry. There are also a number of projects nearing finalisation, with the aim of reducing chemical herbicides and replacing them with useful organisms.
