When you think about “high risk, high reward” crops, tomatoes should be one of the first vegetable crops that comes to mind. It is one of the most expensive vegetables to grow, requiring rigorous spraying programs, effective fertilization and a lot of attention and labour. Ensuring that everything is done right and on time still doesn’t guarantee that you will have a successful crop – that’s the “high risk” part.
Selecting the right variety for your needs and area takes you that much closer to a high quality yield. If a strong growing plant with large, excellent quality saladettes is what you are looking for, then 𝗦𝗩𝟴𝟰𝟰𝟰𝗧𝗘* is the variety you are looking for!
In these photos, Dewald van Vuuren from Green Grace can be seen in one of his 𝗦𝗩𝟴𝟰𝟰𝟰𝗧𝗘* plantings. This crop has faced a very challenging season – not only has it received over 650mm of rain, it also grew through high pressure cycles of late blight infection and tuta absoluta exposure.
Well done on growing an excellent crop Dewald. May the combination of your farming practices and prime varieties like SV8444TE* result in many more successful seasons.
