Parthenon is a variety that is known for its consistent performance and excellent yield potential – not only in South Africa, but worldwide. It is a slower maturing variety with a very vigorous growth habit. It has shown to be very adaptable, especially in the difficult climatic conditions that we experienced this past season. In these photos, Wilhelm (JW) Meyer, from Grootbrak in the Southern Cape can be seen in one of his Parthenon plantings a few weeks ago. The plants were exceptionally healthy, and the end produce was of the highest quality. Planting good genetics is just one part of growing a successful crop – the rest is up to the farmer and the practices applied. Well done on growing a very successful crop, not only this season but always. Keep up the good work!
