Visiting the breeding station

June 20, 2018 16:59 Visiting Marjolein and Harry Kuipers, two enthusiastic associated breeders at the Den Hartigh breeding station. They are breeding new varieties for Den Hartigh in the french fries, chips and consumption segments. In this region a lot of rain has fallen this spring, nevertheless the trial field has recovered well. We are very glad about this.
