Batavia Lettuce Seeds
Local breeding work makes it possible to attain well-adapted varieties for each growing area.
Mid- to high-vigor Batavia with a well-defined heart
Mildly blistered leaf with a bright green color
Excellent uniformity and performance in the field
Recommended for fall-winter greenhouse crops
HR: Bl 16-25
High vigor, large sized variety
Looser, “semi-open” heads are very well-formed at the base
Non-blistered leaves with an attractive light color
Early season Batavia recommended for fall-winter greenhouse crops
HR: Bl 16-25
Yellow Batavia for spring and summer cultivation in greenhouse or open field. Balanced plant habit, yields heads with uniformity of size and shape. Leading summer variety.
HR: Bl 16,19,21,23
High Resistance. Plant varieties that highly restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen under normal pest or pathogen pressure when compared to susceptible varieties. These plant varieties may, however, exhibit some symptoms or damage under heavy pest or pathogen pressure.
Intermediate Resistance. Plant varieties that restrict the growth and development of the specified pest or pathogen, but may exhibit a greater range of symptoms or damage compared to high resistant varieties. Intermediately resistant plant varieties will still show less severe symptoms or damage than susceptible plant varieties when grown under similar environmental conditions and/or pest or pathogen pressure.
Physiological races Bl:1-15 of Bremia lactucae (downy mildew) in lettuce are agronomical no longer relevant in Europe, as to the best of our knowledge these races are no longer observed in practice in Europe nowadays. Therefore reference to the races Bl:1-15 is no longer made in resistance claims with regard to B. lactucae. From May 1st 2014 onwards, the resistance claim of a variety refers only to Bl:16-31.
P.s.: Although race Bl:19 is to the best of our knowledge also no longer observed in practice nowadays, reference to the race Bl:19 will continue to be made in resistance claims with regard to B. lactucae to simplify the notation of the resistance claim. In practice this means that for example Bl:16-31 should be understood as Bl:16-18,20-31.
