The weather affects fennel crops

Over the past few years, fennel crops have been going through many crises in the various cultivation areas - the planning schemes operators (producers, traders and technicians) have applied for years struggle to guarantee results due to the adverse weather.

Abnormal growth leads to increasing plant problems, which heavily affect yields when it comes to volumes. Climate change also has an effect on harvesting times, causing significant issues for operators. Produce becomes available during short periods of time, making it difficult to harvest and place the produce on the market, which in turn means producers and traders have to settle for unsatisfactory prices.

HM.Clause is a leading seed company that, over the years, has selected and made available high-performing varieties with great professionalism and rigor, always keeping market needs in mind and having a clear vision of the evolution of consumption and habits. As for fennel, the research focuses on new varieties that can please such a demanding market characterized by sudden changes.

Michelangelo F1 joined the HM.Clause range alongside leading varieties such as Tiziano F1 and Tiepolo F1. It has proven to be a reliable variety with excellent quality, yields above average and cycles that withstand adverse weather. Michelangelo F1 impressed operators thanks to its white color already at a young age, meaning harvesting can be shifted depending on operator needs and fluctuating prices.

Michelangelo F1 fennel - good quality and yields!
Michelangelo F1, with a cycle of 100-110 days, is a winter variety that adapts well to abnormally warm weather and does not fear sudden temperature changes. Plants are rustic, vigorous and erect. Bulbs have a round shape and a white color, with small roots leading to a prolonged shelf-life and high yields. Michelangelo F1 is much appreciated by consumers and the big retail chain for its crunchiness, aroma and unmistakable sweetness.

The HM.Clause range also boasts Guttuso F1 and Leonardo F1 fall varieties, Tiziano F1 and Tiepolo F1 winter varieties, Sarno Tintoretto F1 and Caravaggio F1 late varieties and Botticelli F1 for spring.

HM.Clause is always ready to find new varieties with excellent performances to add to its range, and new varieties will be presented soon.
