Basil, exploring genetics for Vertical Farming (VIDEO)

Another JakajimaTV talk with Jasper den Besten, HAS University of Applied Sciences about The importance of the variety choice for vertical farming.

Choosing the correct variety is often underexposed in vertical farming. However, the differences between varieties are huge.

The differences between basil varieties can be a factor two or more. Results of variety tests are limited accessible. Our basil varieties trial in Brightbox showed the importance of doing variety tests.

Jasper den Besten will be speaking at the Vertical Farming Conference, see the program.

  1. Hello,
    I wonder if phenotyping can be integrated into your research procedures, In light of the fact that you are looking for varieties to suit your growing needs.
    I invite you to visit our website: http://www.plant-ditech.com
    In September 2020 our system will be set at NPEC greenhouse (Wageningen University) as part of this phenotyping research facility.
    It will be appreciated to get a response from you.
    best regards, Ofer Ben-Mazia Customer Relations Manager at Plant-Ditech Ltd.

    1. I’ve checked your website and sent you a reaction via your contact page.
      Interesting to know that your system will be in Wageningen in autumn.
