Agriculture - - At Agrilink - BY JULIO P. YAP, JR.

DUR­ING THIS YEAR’S EDI­TION of Agrilink, one of the most vis­ited ex­hibit booths is that of the Al­lied Botan­i­cal Cor­po­ra­tion (ABC).

This is mainly be­cause ABC fea­tured more species and va­ri­eties of veg­eta­bles and flow­er­ing or­na­men­tals.

No­tice­able of which is its sun­flower va­ri­eties which were very pro­lific and at­trac­tive.

An­other dis­play that at­tracted the in­ter­est of the vis­i­tors is the pur­ple corn va­ri­ety which is very sweet-tast­ing, soft, and very nice and en­joy­able to eat from the cob when boiled or steamed.

The pur­ple corn va­ri­ety was also made avail­able, cooked, in one of the out­door ex­hibit booths of ABC at a very af­ford­able price.

The new corn va­ri­ety will soon be made avail­able in the mar­ket, ac­cord­ing to ABC Re­gion-4B and Re­gion-5 area sales man­ager Rudy Dean.

Dif­fer­ent fresh veg­eta­bles that were grown from the seeds dis­trib­uted by ABC such as Con­dor, Sakata, Rijk Zwaan, and many oth­ers, were also made avail­able like let­tuce, dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of toma­toes, am­palaya, squash, Korean radish, egg­plant, and a lot more oth­ers.

ABC also dis­played its dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties of wa­ter­melon and melon which are all very pro­lific.

One thing that got the in­ter­est of the lady vis­i­tors is Sakata’s F1 hy­brid Lisianthus – a rose-like flow­er­ing or­na­men­tal plant.

The Lisianthus has ex­cel­lent rose formed flower bud, with thick petal for long-last­ing shelf life that al­lows easy trans­porta­tion.

ABC also fea­tured dif­fer­ent farm in­puts like Kop­pert Bi­o­log­i­cal Sys­tems, Peters, Nor­dox, and many oth­ers the com­pany dis­trib­utes in the coun­try.

Al­lied Botan­i­cal Cor­po­ra­tion is the lead­ing sup­plier, pro­ducer and breeder of veg­etable seeds in the Philip­pines.

With a solid pro­gram for lo­cal­ized breed­ing, the com­pany prides it­self with its rigid se­lec­tion and breed­ing for trop­i­cal veg­eta­bles.

ABC is a sup­plier of the best qual­ity veg­etable and flower seeds a grower can find in the Philip­pines.

It car­ried some of the world’s best known brands in the hor­ti­cul­ture busi­ness, where each brand is a sym­bol of ex­cel­lence and spe­cial­iza­tion in its field.
