Cultivation calendar green beans
In The Netherlands, our cultivation sites are located around our processing sites. Did you know that after sowing the green beans the seeds are immediately covered with acrylic cloth? This way, we can accelerate the growth process and make optimal use of the Dutch summer season.
In Morocco, growing green beans requires a lot of flexibility. Because of the temperature differences during the seasons, a strict cultivation schedule is used.
Senegal is, after Morocco and Egypt, the country where the longest cultivation period for the green bean is possible.
Just like in The Netherlands, green beans can only be grown in the summer season in Belgium. The cultivation period in Belgium is from July to September.
With the green bean crop in France, we supplement the period between the crops coming from the African countries and the crops in The Netherlands and Belgium. For two periods a year, France has the ideal climate for growing and cultivating green beans.
Traditionally, Egypt has been a country known for growing crops. With the knowledge we have there, we can continue to optimise the quality of the green beans.
