WILP, Netherlands: Comes autumn and Schoneveld breeding in Wilp, Netherlands prepares itself for its annual Cyclamen trials. Partial lockdowns and travel restrictions across Europe, however, may impede industry professionals to attend the event live. In such a case, virtual tours provide an efficient substitute, providing a comprehensive overview of all what is happening at the company.
The Cyclamen Open Days 2020 (week 43, 44 and 45) is a showcase for tried-and-tested varieties but will also host a significant number of breeding breakthroughs.
One of the highlights this year is the newest member within the Superseries: Super Leopardo. This early-flowering Cyclamen has large blooms and is bred to have good heat tolerance, making it ideal for production in warmer climates.
The Cyclamen event includes a number of side by side trials while the technical manager will be at hand to provide information on various sowing and cultivation techniques as well as pest and disease control. The show also offers insights into product-market combinations and retail concepts.
