Emmeloord, 5 November 2021 – on Wednesday 3 and Thursday 4 November, Agrico presented two new varieties during an intimate Meet & Greet at its breeding and research farm, Agrico Research in Bant. COVID-19 has led to temporarily taking a slightly different approach this year, with Agrico’s Meet & Greet. This smaller set-up gave Agrico the opportunity to welcome its customers in person, in a responsible manner, with a focus on seeing and meeting everybody.
