20 Years high wire cucumbers

20 Years high wire cucumbers

Herman Hermans – from pioneering to success

 

‘Robotization and big data as the biggest developments '

Herman Hermans – Innocrop Consulting: ‘When I think back to when we started with high-wire, I remember exciting, pioneering times.’ The startup were times of trial and error and close collaboration between growers, consultants and BASF Vegetable Seeds to resolve bottlenecks in the shift to high wire cultivation.

In this video Hermans also speaks about the high-wire system having become a mainstay and the very important role that BASF must play with high quality and productive high wire varieties to be labor-friendly, easy to work with and disease resistant.

For the next 20 years Hermans sees robotization and big data as the biggest developments and challenges how this will affect the role of advisors in the future. One thing is certain: Hermans is ready for that challenge!

 

 

20 YEARS HIGH WIRE CUCUMBERS 

It’s been already in the 1990s that growers tried cultivating cucumbers in high wire tomato greenhouses, but it took the industry some more years to make it a real success. Today high wire cucumber growing has become the state-of-the-art system in many countries, giving the opportunity for market-oriented production, further optimization and automation.

At BASF Vegetable Seeds we are proud of being a vital part in this development. Together with you, we want to celebrate these 20 successful years in high wire cucumber cultivation in 2020. We will to take you with us on a thrilling journey from the past to the future. We will exchange our knowledge in stories, videos, masterclasses, network at several events and become even more inspired about the endless opportunities of cucumbers. 2020 will be full of surprises for all of us.

Let’s join and celebrate together.
