Growing buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) had a long tradition in Switzerland which disappeared in the 20th century. Since a few years interest in buckwheat increased again and among others also varieties adapted to the climatic conditions had to be found. Therefore Agroscope, the Swiss Agricultural Research station, initiated field trials with different buckwheat varieties in 2014. Among the tested varieties there were also five with a determinate growth from a Russian breeding program. Trials at two sites (Zurich and Zollikofen) with 14 varieties have been conducted in 2016. Grain yields varied from 15.7 dt/ha (Drollet) up to 33.8 dt/ha (Drushina). The water content of the Russian varieties at harvest varied between 13.6 % and 18 % at Zurich and 27 % and 29.1 % at Zollikofen. In order to confirm results, trials should be repeated again in 2017. Whether with new buckwheat varieties a successful Swiss buckwheat production can be initiated depends on one side on the consumer but also on possibilities of the processing of buckwheat grains (i.e. dehulling) and the development of other buckwheat products than flour.
