Under unusually mild weather conditions for August, and after over 8 months of preparation, HM.CLAUSE kicked off the first annual International Field Days at Davis, California, with attendees from over 40 countries. Attendees viewed over 370 varieties from fresh market tomato, squash, cucumber, sweet pepper, hot pepper, beans, melon, watermelon, processing tomato, and new this year, pumpkin/winter squash.
The week started with an internal day for Sales, Product Managers, Product Development, and Breeders. The following two days, the teams invited guests through the commercial line up. Also new this year, a select group of early pre-commercial varieties in each species, allowing customers a sneak peek of some exciting products advancing through the development pipeline.
