Seed Trial Video Playlist
The 2020 Syngenta Australian Melon Conference & Field Day, due to be held in March 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19. Over 3,500 meters of melon trials had been established at Capogreco Farms, Waroona, Western Australia in readiness for the conference.
Shot on location at Capogreco Farms, the video series features five melon variety trial sites by seed companies Syngenta, Seminis, BASF Nunhems, HM Clause and Rijk Zwaan, as well as a highlight compilation video featuring all variety trials.
There are a lot of traditional melon offerings, but also varieties that meet the ongoing demands of the grower, such as aphid resistance and high yield potential, and the interest from consumers for sweetness, keepability and outstanding taste profiles. There is a strong commitment by seed companies to breeding new varieties of melons to meet the growing market for melons in Australia. The Australian melon industry is grateful for the support of Capogreco Farms and the seed companies in making these trials so successful.
