Asparagus Macedonia

AGRORGANIC is currently investigating, in collaboration with Hay Coenen, the possibility of growing white asparagus in greenhouses. There is a growing demand for early available asparagus, with increasing resistance to the import of these asparagus from e.g. South America. The reason for this is the high CO2 imprint that the import entails, as well as the method of preserving which keeps the asparagus "fresh". Macedonia is an alternative and, within Europe, a suitable country for this cultivation. An early spring with sufficient hours of sunshine and the shelter of older, usable greenhouses make it possible to make asparagus available for the European market early. The intention is to start this project in the spring of 2020.
