Demo days Open Field

 

Lettuce show you

Enza Zaden has a wide range of leafy crops and open field crops. Our varieties are not only reliable, but also qualitatively strong and have high resistances.

Seeing is believing

Visit our demo days in Twisk during week 39 - from Tuesday 26 through Friday 29 September - and see for yourself what we have to offer. Based on what we see in practice we can discuss which characteristics are important to you, and how we can help you make the most of them. 

What can you expect to see during this week?

Fokke Hoeksma, Open Field growing advisor, explains: “You will find our full range of iceberg lettuce in our fields. In addition to successful commercial varieties such as Damion, Elmundo (E01E.10308) and Eduardo, we will also show you varieties that have been successfully screened and will be trialled on a larger scale next year. We will also show you all types of cos lettuce. From Little Gem to the larger types and a whole new series of red cos lettuce types.”

Other lettuce types will also be included, such as Lollo Rosso, Lollo Bionda, Batavia and the green and red oak leaf types.

What else?

“We would also like to introduce you to endive, directly sown Babyleaf and Eazyleaf and spinach. You will also find various rocket varieties in our fields,” according to Fokke.

In addition to the crops in the field, there will also be displays of our wide range of other successful open field crops, such as cauliflower, pumpkin, radish, broccoli, courgette and leek. For example, what about our Orange Summer pumpkin variety, which is known for its flavour and exceptional yield?  

Everyone is welcome

In other words, there is plenty to see and do. All parties working in or interested in open field cultivation are more than welcome: from growers to the processing industry, traders and retail.
