Fox Seeds Inc., based in Norfolk County, is continuing to expand its global reach in asparagus seed production and sales.
Trials are now underway in the U.K., Poland, Germany, northern Spain, Portugal and Russia, according to Norfolk Farms newspaper.
The asparagus variety Guelph Eclipse, developed at the University of Guelph Simcoe Research Station in Norfolk County, will be available for a second year in 2018. In 2020, the Guelph Equinox variety will be released.
“Grower trials look extremely promising and growers are excited about what might be ‘the next best thing’ with yields in some trials almost double that of Guelph Millenium [variety]”, said Bernie Solymar, executive director of Fox Seeds.
