A warm welcome to Rijkzwaan's Hydro Demo, which is taking place from 20 September to 1 October 2021, close to their open-field demo in Fijnaart. "We are expecting it to attract just as much interest as our very first Hydro Demo that was held in June of this year. A new highlight at this autumn demo is cos lettuce (romaine) for hydroponic production," the team announces.
Broad hydroponics range
The company is presenting 50 of their lettuce varieties that are suitable for hydroponic production, ranging from babyleaf to whole-head lettuces. The Teenleafs – loose-leaf lettuces for mechanical harvesting – are an important part of this demo. They will also display a number of new Salatrio combinations, plus they are presenting their hydroponic varieties of cos lettuce for the first time.
The demo varieties have been planted at regular intervals over a period of time to provide a clear view of their various growth stages. The gutters are just two meters wide, which enables you to assess the plants thoroughly.
When visiting the demo, you can rest assured that the company has taken all the necessary precautions to ensure a COVID-proof and successful event. By hosting only small groups, they create a safer experience plus they are able to pay personal attention to your interests and needs.
