Grampian Growers recently visited our partners Agroplant BV in Medemblick, Holland to view their advanced seedlings from their breeding programs. Agroplant, whom Grampian Growers represent in the UK and Ireland, select their varieties from a number of ‘hobby’ breeders as well as from a dedicated breeding program commissioned exclusively for their own use. This has proved very successful with varieties such as Dido and Actrice being bred from these sources. Grampian Growers are already trialing these varieties, and others, extensively in the UK and Ireland with great success and it is hoped that the new selections made in Medemblick will yield another winner for the UK and Irish markets.
