Yuksel Seed demonstrates Mexican breeding program at Expo Agroalimentaria:
All eyes on Mexico
The team of Yuksel at the demo greenhouse at the Expo Agroalimentaria this month: Ziya Yildiz, Ricardo Mendez and Tyler Clark
Yuksel Seed Mexico S.A. de C.V presented itself to the Mexican industry for the first time during the Expo Agroalimentaria in Irapuato this month. The team welcomed interested growers, farmers, shippers and traders at their demonstration greenhouse to show them some of their most promising and interesting varieties for the Mexican market.
Since 2013, Yuksel's varieties are grown in Mexican greenhouses. The breeder set up a complete separate business entity with Mexican management, breeding program and demonstration greenhouses. The varieties are bred with a focus on the Mexican climates and production settings from low tech soil grown greenhouses to high tech hydroponic operations.
"Our first commercial variety adapted by the Mexican industry was our specialty tomato Espresso", said Yildiz. "The hydroponic tomato is cultivated by producers who are under contract of Canadian growers. It's a brown/ red cocktail tomato that produces nice round uniform fruits of 150-170 grams and grows on a strong plant with many vigour."
Yildiz expects a lot from the Mexican market and explained that it is currently one of the most important growth markets for them. "The Mexican acreage with protected crop experiences constant growth, every week new greenhouses are opened. We expect a lot from this industry and have a special focus on the Nafta countries."
Furthermore, Ziya explained that other important tomatoes offered by Yuksel Mexico are specialty tomatoes Quasimodo, Stealth, Sacher and Tiger. Next to this Yuksel's Mamut variety has really taken off in the Saladette segment. Saladettes are comparable to Roma tomatoes and are still the major type of tomatoes grown in the Mexican soil greenhouses.
Yet, the biggest growth of the Mexican industry is driven by hydroponics. For this part of the industry, Yuksel offers a selection of other commercial varieties. Aside from many specialty tomatoes they also offer cucumber varieties Enduro (in the picture), Synergy, Mystik and Kyra. Another variety worth mentioning is hot banana pepper Mohinora, which is increasingly present in Mexican greenhouses.
The seeds from Yuksel Seeds Mexico are directly available from their offices in Guadalajara, Jalisco, as well as via distributors like Keithly-Williams Seeds and Ahern Seeds.
