Welcome to the MATEX company site

Our company´s history began on March 1, 2000. At that time, we farmed a 570 – hectare land and we had six employees.
We rented the premises of the farmyard in Veškovce from the bankruptcy trustee. Later we bought it and decided to develop the tradition of the former State-owned Seed Enterprise. We have been dealing with the seed multiplication since the very beginning. 

 

SEEDS

Everything we offer is grown in our fields and under our own professional supervision. The sowing plan includes cereals, oilseed rape, soybeans, peas and white mustard. We currently manage an area of 1,850 hectares in eleven cadastres, and we have built a technological base for seed production at the highest level.

If you are interested in our technological procedures, feel free to contact us.
