Corn / Maize
PETKUS has established itself as an expert in the area of corn seed processing technology. Over the last ten years PETKUS Technology corn cob drying houses have been built that dry over 40,000 hectares of field corn per year. Every year the use of PETKUS cleaners increases by an average of 4,000 tonnes per hour. In the last 15 years, the PETKUS Group has realized seed processing lines and turnkey plants in countries such as Ukraine, Turkey, Russia, Belarus, Germany, Bangladesh, India, Morocco, Spain, Serbia, Hungary and China.
Annually, around 7 million tons of corn seed are produced worldwide (FAO). The European corn seed market alone amounted to 1,820 million Euros in 2012. One of the most important components of the seed production chain is the processing technology that minimizes the loss of kernels and maintains the quality of a batch. Stringing together various machines is in itself not technology and definitely not a processing solution for daily use. The economic success of a plant depends on the quality of the machines, the configuration of individual technological elements according to local requirements as well as a realistic assessment of the investment volume and detailed capacity calculations for optimum usage.
