An important target group for Seed meets Technology are growers of vegetables. The six participating companies (ABZ Seeds, Ergon Seed, Prudac, Sakata, Wing Seed and Takii Europe) are presenting under the name ‘Vegetable trials’ their new varieties on the trial fields. For growers and other interested people, there is specially set up a tour. Through ‘Variety tours’ twice a day, growers can get explanations from the breeders. You can sign up for this by using the registration form.
Just as last year Ergon Seed will focus on its pink tomatoes during the event. Our variety Pink Delight F1 is becoming the standard in more and more (Eastern European) countries. Pink Delight is of excellent quality, has a good shelf life and the fruits have a deep pink colour. We will show you this variety as well as some of our new entries in this line.
Next to this we are pleased to show you some of our squashes and our new hot pepper varieties in the Sivri and Charleston type segment.
Products that Prudac shows are their unique pot tomatoes, potpepers and pot cherries.
