Hybrid shines in farmer’s trial

WorldVeg line AVBG1601 (released as ‘NBH-Figo’ by Noble Seeds Pvt. Ltd).

Cucurbit breeder Narinder Dhillon received this feedback about WorldVeg bitter gourd hybrid AVBG1601 (released as ‘NBH-Figo’ by Noble Seeds Pvt. Ltd) from Kamal Kumar Yadav, a vegetable breeder with Noble:

Dear Sir,

On 10 April 2017 I visited a farmer’s field trial of bitter gourd ‘NBH-Figo’ at Belgaum, North Karnataka, India. We received a very positive response from the farmer regarding the yield, powdery mildew tolerance and virus tolerance of this hybrid.

Thanks with regards,
