Bayer has described the recently held Nunhems lettuce demonstration weeks as a success, with visitors drawn to ’s-Gravenzande from across the globe.
“It’s the perfect occasion for us, our customers and importantly their customers to discuss together," said Matthew Beevers, crop sales manager lettuce."We always ensure tailored one to one visits and that exchange of ideas and experiences really drives our business, we value this open dialogue immensely."
During a period of three weeks stakeholders from across the produce chain could visit the Bayer demo location in ’s-Gravenzande. The Crop team for lettuce welcomed visitors not only from North and South Europe but also from the Americas, Asia and Australia.
“The combination of the outdoor lettuce demo and our state of the art indoor hydroponic lettuce facility is unique and attracts many visitors," noted Peter Does, product specialist lettuce. "Hydroponics continues to accelerate as a true alternative to soil production so it was great to share our experiences, ideas and specifically selected portfolio with our customers.’’
