First onion sets are sown18-04-2012
Broer B.V. has sown the first fields of first year onion sets last Friday. As always, Broer B.V. started with the early varieties Stuttgarter Stanfield, Jagro and Jetset. The sowing conditions are excellent. Sowing will continue the coming weeks.
The onions are sown by selected agricultural contractors, who have, like Broer B.V., many years of experience in growing first year onion sets. The fields will be monitored by selected cultivation specialists. Their inspections are complemented with inspections executed by researchers of Bejo and Naktuinbouw*.
