Ringspot Resistance in New Winter Cauliflower Varieties

Winter Cauliflower Seed

Elsoms are proud to introduce the first full range of winter cauliflower seed with ringspot resistance in the UK.

After years of research and development, Bejo’s breeding team has created an entire range of cauliflower varieties with robust ringspot resistance. This breakthrough is huge for growers grappling with ringspot issues, providing peace of mind, and ensuring a healthier, more resilient crop.

But that’s not all. Our portfolio maintains the high standards of quality and performance you’ve come to expect from Bejo and Elsoms. Each variety is meticulously selected for its high yield and excellent field performance, backed by extensive trials conducted both in the UK and abroad.
