As in previous years, Rijk Zwaan’s Hydro Demo in Fijnaart is on the agenda again, running from 31 January to 11 February 2022. This demo will showcase the company’s wide choice of innovative and colorful lettuce varieties that have been specifically bred for hydroponic cultivation systems. From the eye-catching Salatrio and Salanova Teenleaf concepts to crispy, juicy Crunchy Lettuce, the range caters to all tastes.
Colorful hydroponics range
As part of Rijk Zwaan's overarching ‘Colorful Life’ theme, the colorful hydroponic varieties will be firmly in the spotlight during this year’s Hydro Demo. The displays will be based on three main hydroponic concepts:
1) A number of new Salatrio combinations, providing consumers with a delightfully colorful lettuce bouquet featuring an abundance of equally-sized and one-cut-ready leaves.
2) High-density Salanova Teenleaf – the machine-harvestable and ready-to-eat hydroponic lettuce which is available in a wide range of attractive colors, textures, and leaf shapes, and 3) Multiple Romaine and Crunchy Lettuce varieties, which meet the demand for hydroponically grown sweet and crunchy lettuce types while also offering good weights and tip burn tolerance.
Visitors to the demo can once again rest assured that the vegetable breeding company has taken all the necessary precautions to ensure a COVID-proof and successful event. The Rijk Zwaan team members are looking forward to welcoming industry professionals to the demo and inspiring them with the broad hydroponic range.
