Switching any type of seeds into commercial grade requires testing under several agricultural and climate conditions.

The protected tomato species SVTH4040 was tested for two consecutive years in several areas. It yielded very positive results in terms of vegetation cover and high productivity, in addition to the firmness of the fruits and their homogeneity.

Based on these results, Debbane Agri has organized an open field day on June 9, at the Kfarmelki/Akkar station for prominent merchants and farmers (from different regions), in order to shed light on the strengths of this tomato variety and commercially launch it.

The attendees have all agreed on this species’ added value, particularly in terms of its high productivity in comparison to the controls: This characteristic is of great importance in order to increase the yield and therefore fight the increased production cost.

After years of trial, the big moment has finally arrived: All required characteristics are combined in this new tomato species SVTH4040, by the international Seminis/Bayer company.
