The Bejo Open Days annual voyage of discovery for growers and partners from the chain takes place from 25th to 29th September 2018. Bejo looks forward to sharing its research and innovation results during these days. The various activities and attractions, including guided tours, symposiums and crop presentations, ensure that visitors experience and discover Bejo at its best.

New varieties

Various promising new varieties with improved external characteristics, disease resistance, storage quality and taste can be seen for the first time in the demonstration fields. Discover the vigorous growth of B-Mox and get an update on the latest developments in the organic lettuce range. Bejo will display a varied assortment of tomatoes, peppers and gherkins in the innovative fruit crop tunnel. Beekeepers will demonstrate the importance of bees and Bejo’s activities in bee breeding and bee health. 

Concepts

In addition to Bejo's well-known innovative concepts like the ‘Coolwrap’ cabbage concept and the Cool carrot candy, visitors will also discover new applications for kohlrabi and Brussels sprouts. The Purple Power concept is new this year. Purple varieties are not only characterised by their beautiful colour, their high vitamin and antioxidant content also makes a positive contribution to a healthy lifestyle.
