Open Days 2019

ELSOMS’ Open Day

We are delighted to invite you to our 2019 Open Days at our trial field in Spalding, Lincolnshire, PE11 3JG.

As the UK’s leading independent seed company, our Open Days are the UK’s largest independent vegetable variety trials. They provide a great opportunity to see our extensive vegetable portfolio and new variety introductions to the vegetable market.

Our crop specialists, breeders and seed technology experts will be available to discuss the best way we can support you and your business. There will also be a range of trade and machinery exhibits that are relevant to your needs, with chef Rachel Green cooking some exciting recipes using our varieties.

 

Our trial field will display varieties that include:

  • Burgundy – a new purple sprouting broccoli, which has produced outstanding results in recent trials, and has demonstrated a reduction in harvesting costs 

 

  • Kaluga – an attractive, winter white cabbage variety that has performed well in commercial trials and is suitable for long-term storage

There will also be trial plots that include root crops, alliums, salads and catch and cover crops, along with crop protection trials by Agrii and our own industry-focused trial on tolerance to thrips in white cabbage and light leaf spot in Brussels sprouts.

BASIS and NRoSO points will be available at this event.

Please RSVP by registering your attendance using the form below.

In 2019 we are celebrating our 175th anniversary and we look forward to seeing you at our Open Days in this special celebratory year.
