As the world leader in Carrots by producing a third of all carrot seeds sold worldwide, Vilmorin-Mikado was delighted to sponsor the 3rd Symposium on Carrots and other Apiaceae, which took place in the UK this year, in the city of York.

From October 2nd to October 5th, our passionate experts welcomed clients who had come to the event from 18 different countries. It was the perfect opportunity for our teams to introduce our skills, expertise, and Vilmorin-Mikado’s World Carrot Range.

A comprehensive, dynamic range of solutions for every market

Our teams went to the British Carrot Growers Association Demonstration Day to promote the wide variety available in our Carrot range, a comprehensive, dynamic range comprising over 50 varieties and 6 types of carrot, including Chantenay, Nantaise and Berlicum.

The 26 carrot varieties presented all stand out for their disease resistance, yield quality, range of colors, roots and uniformity.

One of our most recent innovations on offer, the TERAPUR variety, was a great success. A plant based solution following agroecological principles, this trap crop is intended to give the European market an effective way to control Heterodera carotae, the carrot nematode.
