These were grown under different structures namely, polytunnels & net houses and different media i.e. soil and substrates. Our RZI team explained the varieties and crops during the demo to the customers. After lunch, a training session on Mini Cucumber, Sweet Pepper and Green House Cropping Management was organized. Live fruit and plant samples of our main varieties from different crops were also demonstrated.

In this event, over 140 growers from major open-field vegetable growing areas of Punjab, Haryana, and UP and 3 channel partners, who are dealing with open field crops attended the Program. Major crops like cauliflower, White Cabbage, Broccoli and different varieties of Lettuce were demonstrated with proper cultivation practices. Live fruit and plant samples were also displayed during the event. The USP’s, cultural practices and variety details were thoroughly explained. Customers had a thorough interaction with our team, all the queries were answered and doubts were cleared.
