General director Jan van Hoogen looks back on the Variety and Seedling Show very positively. “It is special that after three years we can finally organize a full variety and seedling show again,” says Van Hoogen. It is amazing to be able to welcome and speak to everyone at Agrico Research again. Establishing and amplifying the connection is one of the main goals of the show and we believe we've absolutely succeeded.
