Agrico presents four new potato varieties during its annual variety presentation

On Thursday 10 November, Agrico opened its annual varieties and seedlings show at its breeding and research facility, Agrico Research, in Bant. The varieties show, which was also open on Friday 11 November, attracted many interested national and international visitors. During the opening day, Agrico’s managing director Jan van Hoogen presented four promising new varieties that have recently been included in the Dutch list of varieties. The theme at this year’s Agrico variety show was Greece.
