Visitors from far and wide for Rijk Zwaan demo days in Fijnaart

Rijk Zwaan held this year’s demo days in Fijnaart from 16 June to 4 July. Growers, nursery owners, processors and other business partners were once again cordially invited to inspect the trial field and to discuss the latest developments in open field crops with Rijk Zwaan’s specialists.

One particular highlight was the new endive variety, 11-602. While sharing the same characteristics as its predecessors, this variety can also be grown in the summer. Also on display in the demo field were new varieties of celery, iceberg lettuce and Crunchy cos, which is a flavoursome cross between iceberg and romaine lettuce.

“Visitors came from a wide range of different countries, including the USA, Spain, France and New Zealand, and their feedback was very positive”, says trial field coordinator Arno van Oers. “We noticed that many people value the fact that visits are by appointment only. That means that we have plenty of time to show our customers round the demo field properly.”
