Arable farming on the Sandering farm

Our arable farming can be divided into three sub-areas, which we would like to present briefly here. 

Potato cultivation

The biggest pillar of the farm today is potato growing. In recent years, enormous efforts have been made in the areas of cultivation, fertilization, plant protection and processing as well as marketing to optimize better quality and sustainability.

The tuber is on everyone's lips here and has a very large and important role, many hours a year are spent here to constantly increase and prepare the planning and cultivation. In addition, many trials are held with partners from the trade, science and practice.

The potatoes are marketed in three production directions. First and foremost are the chip potatoes, which are marketed both nationally and internationally. 

In addition, there are other varieties for the production of starch and chips, whereby the majority is marketed regionally.

Corn cultivation

Maize has been present on the farm ever since bull fattening was introduced, because maize serves as the basic feed layer for the animals. Year after year, the highest quality of feed is important, because the basis of good bull fattening is good feed.


Beside the silage maize there is also grain maize, this is also used for the crop rotation planning but also humus formation, because the maize straw enriches the soil enormously in the point humus formation.

Grain farming

Cereal cultivation has gained in importance in recent years
. Crop rotation, especially in connection with the potato, is to be seen as an important point.

The cereals grown are winter triticale
and winter barley. The threshed grain is then marketed to the
feed producer for the farm's own pigs.
