16.07.2019 – After this year's International WUXAL Conference the Seminario Caribe took place for the second time after 2016.
The meeting was especially dedicated to partners from Central America and the Caribbean. Further guests were:
- Our partner from Uruguay
- Our consultant from Colombia
- Our consultant from Brazil
The first day of the meeting took place in Bremen. The focus of this meeting was new ways in WUXAL communication in Central America and the Caribbean.
The new WUXAL brand concept has been presented for different channels:
- Implementation of the new brand appearance
- myWUXAL web application
- Improved application convenience
In addition, the partners were offered the opportunity to exchange experiences.
On the second day of the seminar, we demonstrated the horticultural and agronomic expertise in practice to our partners.
For this purpose we first visited a professional nursery in Ammerland. 100 ha of nurseries are cultivated indoors and outdoors. It is one of the five large companies in this region. We have learned about plant care, single production steps, logistics and customer needs.
The Ammerland is known for its huge nursery business. There is a modern infrastructure for production and logistics for potting plants, shrubs and tree nurseries.
In the afternoon agricultural crops in the Dutch polder region near the North Sea were visited.
What is special about the soils of this region is that they were extracted from sediments of the sea. The main crops were:
- Oilseed rape
- Sugar beet
All crops have shown excellent vitality and were in top condition. Our partners were impressed by the expected yield and quality due to the extremely high agricultural fertility. In addition, we were able to broaden our partners' horizons with regard to the cultivation of crops that will largely not be found in the Caribbean.
