The onions packaged to be sent

Today our onion trials left for their journey to The Netherlands. Eash year Vigour has been sending samples of onons bred from the Nickerson-Zwaaan onion breeding program to the breeders in Riland in the south of The Netherlands for evaluation. This has proved to be essential in our screening program to ensure that our onions not only perform well for the growers in the field they also have the ability to travel well and arrive in good conditon in Europe.
