May 2017

On the 3rd through the 4th of May, HM.Clause demonstrated their proven innovative pedigree once again at the recently held EGVID Field day event in Lindenow, Victoria.


The event was well attended by both international & interstate growers, grower-marketers, processors, resellers as well as all links in the industry value adding chain. Of considerable interest for the impressive turnout were the following crop segments & varieties:

Intercut (MF15012) – vigorous, erect, finely incised multileaf for cool season harvest with very high leaf volume, yield & great taste for this type. Ideal bag filler in all Mesclun mixes. Also has Bl: 16-32;Nr:0. Limited commercial stock of this variety will be available so get your orders in with your local Sales & Development Manager to ensure seed supply.
