Tue 27/09/2022 by Guy Dubon

Although the Covid-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to industries around the globe last year, Walker Brothers never stopped exploring new ways to improve its asparagus business. By consolidating its partnership with its European distributor, Blumen Vegetable Seeds, Walker Brothers, Inc. continues as a leader in the asparagus world. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, Walker Brothers, Inc. has witnessed an increase in growers wishing to produce and supply fresh asparagus domestically. New growers have contacted the firm via various virtual platforms. Through these connections, the company has found new homes (e.g. in Africa) for its productive and competitive green hybrid asparagus varieties, including Atlas F1™, Grande F1™, UC 157 F1, etc. In this group, Grande F1™ stands out as the dominant variety in Mediterranean countries and has been tested by new growers in areas with similar climates. Walker Brothers, Inc. understands the importance of developing more efficient varieties that offer sustainable and profitable returns, in addition to offering its existing commercial varieties. New hybrids from the Walker Breeding Programme are being tested in 17 countries, including Italy, Spain, and other Mediterranean countries. Walker Brothers, Inc. and Blumen Vegetable Seeds will continue to proudly supply regional and international growers with its decades of expertise in asparagus.
