Bejo features tropical shallots from seed at Horti Asia 2017

Bejo joins the Horti Asia as part of the Dutch Pavilion, stand E7, to demonstrate the potential of top quality hybrid seed for the South East Asian market. In particular, the potential of tropical shallots from seed will be highlighted during Horti Asia at the conference on Thursday 16th of March at 11am by Luc Driessen, Area Business Manager Asia.

After 30 years of intensive research and testing Bejo introduces the first tropical shallot from seed varieties in the world. Tropix is the first generative tropical shallot variety and Maserati F1 is the first hybrid tropical shallot variety. Both are derived from Asian genetic sources and both have their unique qualities. These varieties allow for production of healthy shallots from high quality seed.
