Lettuce

Australia 2020


Introduction

Welcome to the innovative world of Enza Zaden, a world-class vegetable breeding company.

We develop new vegetable varieties that are grown, sold and consumed all over the world.

International, but local

Enza Zaden started in 1938 in Enkhuizen, the Netherlands. Today we have breeding stations

and seed production facilities all over the world. We are a multi-local company. This means we

work with local people. They know all the ins and outs of our sector and their local market.

Australia

Enza Zaden has been active in most main vegetable markets like sweet pepper, cucumber,

tomato, onion, cucurbits and leafy vegetables like iceberg, leafy lettuce and cauliflower for

years through our distributors. From 2020 we continue that relationship with our distributors,

but will also be commercially active as Enza Zaden with our leafy and high-tech product

ranges. Before commercialisation, new varieties are trialled rigorously throughout Australian

growing regions to ensure they meet our market specifications and grower needs.

Assortment

In this brochure, we present our current commercial leafy vegetable assortment with some

new introductions. Feel free to contact your local representative for variety recommendations.

We can help you select the best varieties for your needs! We look forward to working with you.

One-stop shop for lettuce

Superior shelf life and good taste are standard traits in our varieties. We make sure we keep up with the

latest trends and developments. In our lettuce breeding strategy, we focus on developing varieties for:

• production in all growing systems: open field, greenhouse and various hydroponic systems;

• disease resistance;

• all markets: fresh produce market, retailers and processors;

• trends like duo and trio heads, mechanical harvesting and endless processing and packaging concept.

We have made processing ‘EAZY’ with our Eazyleaf range, designed for a one seed, one-cut,

multiple leaves solution.

Our Eazyleaf brand represents lettuce varieties that are

extremely easy to slice and prepare. Eazyleaf offers a simple,

unique and quality solution for everyone involved in the

processing chain. In just one slice, the plant splits into many

small leaves, all equally sized.

Advantages for growers

• Option to mechanise the main crop tasks.

• Good field standing ability.

• Uniformity, reliability, quality.

• Reduced labour costs.

Advantages for consumers

• Instant, fresh and healthy salad.

• Crispy, crunchy and great tasting leaves.

• Easy to cut when bought as whole head.

Advantages for the processing industry

• Excellent shelf life, thanks to a small cutting surface.

• Strong flexible leaves; waste during cutting and processing.

• Higher percentage of usable product.

• Easier to cut and process compared to conventional types.

• Attractive assortment with various leaf shapes and colours.

Resistances

Resistances in varieties of our crops will be coded (see for

explanation our coding list at www.enzazaden.com.), unless

indicated otherwise. In case a variety is resistant to more than one

pathogen, the individual resistance codes will be separated by the

symbol“/”.

High resistance (HR) – plant varieties that highly restrict the growth

and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal

pestor pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties.

These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or

damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure.

• If in a resistance code of a certain variety reference is made to

certain strains for which the resistance is claimed, this means that no

resistance is claimed to other strains of the samepathogen.

• If in a resistance code no reference is made to strains of the

pathogen for which the resistance is claimed, this means that

resistance is claimed only to certain not further specified strains of

the pathogen and herewith disclaiming any guarantee that the variety

will not be infected by the saidpathogen.

Intermediate resistance (IR) – plant varieties that restrict the growth

and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit

a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to highly resistant

plant varieties. Intermediate resistant plant varieties will still show

less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties

when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pest or

pathogen pressure.

Tolerance (T) – the ability of a plant variety to endure abiotic stress

without serious consequences for growth, appearance and yield.

Descriptions, recommendations and illustrations in brochures and leaflets shall correspond as closely as possible to tests and practical
