Canada: Nunhems shares knowledge about High Wire Cucumber cultivation

On 25th September Nunhems organized a Cucumber High Wire Seminar in Canada to share the current and future opportunities, as well as, the challenges in high wire cultivation with the Canadian Cucumber growers.

Cees Ammerlaan, Cucumber Specialist of North Europe, presented the current status of high wire cultivation. He included information about growing areas, advantages and challenges, feasibility examples and variety characteristics. He also shared Dutch experiences in High Wire Cultivation.

Nunhems has achieved global leadership in the Cucumber High Wire segment by developing a unique, most efficient, compact plant type for high wire cultivation. This variety has shorter internodes and small, horizontal leaves. Examples of this healthy compact plant type are Hi Jack and Nun 29997 CUL*; both of these varieties enable high wire growers to optimize yield, quality and labor.

Nunhems strives for reliable and long-term knowledge exchanges with its customers through seminars, field visits and close collaboration with researchers and other companies in the chain.
