Open day celebrates 100th anniversary of Sakata

Sakata's open days were held in Zwaagdijk, Holland, from 24th to 27th September 2013. Guests could visit fields with part of the range Sakata supplies to the European market. 

In addition to the marketed varieties, there were also some experimental ones. Varieties like broccoli, cabbage, Savoy cabbage, cauliflower and Chinese cabbage were presented, as well as spinach, carrots, beets, turnips and pumpkins.

The field was arranged according to the visits. For each variety, different transplants phases were displayed.
