The open days in November were a great success

November 19, 2018 09:01 During the open days on 7, 8 and 9 November many customers found Den Hartigh and showed interest in our potato varieties. We see these open days as a great success.
During the open days, Den Hartigh presented a total of 16 new potatoes with 
Phytophthora resistance for the various market segments. Phytophthora is a dreaded fungal disease. The variety 'Connect' from Den Hartigh has been commercially available for a number of years. This is an example of a resistant potato.
