Rijk Zwaan winter leafy hydroponics demo approaching

Rijk Zwaan’s winter leafy hydroponics demo is nearing.

Scheduled for Feb. 1-10, the plant breeding company plans its winter leafy hydroponics high tech demo in the Netherlands, its home base.

This year’s demo features Rijk Zwaan’s hydroponics assortment, Salatrio and high-density loose-leaf solutions, all under artificial light to cope with the challenging winter conditions.

The demo has been conveniently scheduled in parallel with the upcoming Fruit Logistica in Berlin, making it a great opportunity for horticultural professionals from all over the world to see the latest concepts for themselves, according to a news release.

To be hosted in the Dutch town of Dinteloord, the event provides an ideal opportunity for horticultural professionals to inspect the company’s new and existing concepts specifically bred for hydroponic production, according to the release. The concepts include Rijk Zwaan’s Salatrio living lettuce combinations, Crystal lettuce and Salanova gem butter varieties and more than 20 varieties offering high-density loose-leaf solutions for the fresh-cut industry, according to a news release.

“The Rijk Zwaan team members are eager to welcome industry professionals to the winter leafy hydroponics demo to excite and inspire them with the hydroponically grown varieties and high-density loose-leaf solutions,” company officials said in the release. “Visitors are encouraged to schedule a meeting in advance so that the visit can be tailored to their personal needs. Thanks to the convenient timing of the winter leafy hydroponics demo, overseas visitors can combine a stop-off in the Netherlands with their trip to attend Fruit Logistica in Berlin.”

Based in the Netherlands, the family-owned Rijk Zwaan Zaadteelt en Zaadhandel B.V., develops vegetable varieties and seeds globally.
