Planasa launches three new asparagus varieties
Tue 27/09/2022 by Guy Dubon

Planasa has just launched three varieties onto the market that will be available from 2022. Darkong, Darzan and Darius, the names of the three new selections, mark the start of the renewal of its variety catalogue planed by the company for the next five years.

The three selections are characterised by 100% male genetics, following the research line that began with Darvador, whose development is offering very good results to European growers.  As for its individual characteristics, Darzan is somewhat less precocious than the well-known Darlise, but offers great production and exceptional vigour. Darkong, on the other hand, is a good choice for growers who opt for high yields and large sizes for white asparagus production. And finally, Darius, although a late variety, provides uniform quality throughout the season.

These three new selections, together with Darvador, are Planasa’s commitment to gradually renewing its catalogue and offering growers varieties that will help them to be more competitive and position themselves as market leaders.
