Defense label: resistances against plant diseases

Plant diseases are a major cause of production losses and other headaches for growers worldwide, which is why Rijk Zwaan offers the Defense label. It comprises a number of different lines of varieties that have key resistances against serious plant diseases that can occur during the cultivation of cucumbers, melons, courgettes, sweet peppers and hot peppers, among other crops. Dozens of years of breeding work have gone into the development of these varieties.

With Rijk Zwaan's Defense varieties, fewer crop protection agents are required, which enables growers to optimise their integrated pest management. The Defense label facilitates a dependable and sustainably produced yield of high-quality and healthy products for growers and their value chain partners.
