Rethink the process of variety screening (Plant for a customer)

The operational group ‘Plant for a customer’ prepares an upgrade of the variety screening and evaluation in the fruit sector. Growers, producer’s organizations and research institutions rethink the process of variety selection and evaluation starting from the needs of the customer. In parallel, commercial and technical selection criteria are updated and the process of selection is speeded up. The focus is as well on the main market segment as on niche markets.
