BREEDING FACILITY

The breeding pipelines from Sande and GSBGwill be combined and housed the state-of-the-art breeding

facilities of former Sande. In combination with Dümmen Orange’s modern breeding capabilities, this will

result in a superior offering to customers worldwide and bolster innovations, especially in the introduc-

tion of disease resistance and productivity traits.

STORAGE

We have invested in state-of-the-art storage facilities

for tubers with ozone treatment and optimized

conditions to improve tuber quality. In addition, we

control the quality

of the tubers before they are sent to customers.

CULTIVATION

The Netherlands is already the largest pro-

ducer of calla tubers in the world. Dutch calla

tubers have been used by customers all over the

world for both cut and pot use with year-round

planting schedule. The Netherlands offers the

perfect growing condition for calla tubers with

sandy loam soils and stable climate / tempera-

ture year-round. Our aim is to supply the

healthiest tubers from our own production as

well as the best growers in Holland.

Calla.nl
