This month, LivRio is pleased to present some of the latest news from NIRP International.
NIRP International is known for maintaining the highest standards of quality and genetic improvement when creating new varieties, always respecting different international agreements in breeding under the standards dictated by UPOV. These varieties are not derived or created by modifying genetic organisms (GMOs) or their derivatives, and NIRP takes all reasonable measures to avoid sexual contacts of reproduction with GMOs or their derivatives.
NIRP IN THE WORLD
NIRP has showrooms and experimentation areas for new varieties in many different parts of the world. They also participate each year in cut flower exhibitions worldwide, including Proflora (Colombia), Expo Flor (Ecuador), Hortitec (Brazil), IFTF Vijfhuizen (Holland), Flowers Expo (Russia), among many others. At each fair, they showcase new varieties to offer their clients from around the world.
NIRP IN COLOMBIA
In Colombia, NIRP currently has an established test area in the Betania farms of Sunshine Bouquets, where they evaluate new rose varieties. In the first quarter of 2020, they plan to launch a new showroom on the El Roció farms of Sunshine Bouquets in Cota, Cundinamarca, where they can showcase their new varieties for Colombian flower growers.
NIRP IN ECUADOR
NIRP has two showrooms In Ecuador, which showcase flowers grown under totally different conditions. The first is located in Cotopaxi at 2,950 meters above sea level with an average annual temperature of 11°C; the second, in Cayambe, is 2,770 meters above sea level with an average temperature of 16°C. This difference in climatic conditions and altitude allows them to evaluate different codes and varieties to obtain their highest potential according to where they are cultivated; in this way, they can recommend the varieties which adapt best to each production area.
NIRP IN BRAZIL
Present in Brazil since 2004, NIRP has worked intensely on the regularization and protection of new cultivars produced in this country. They currently have a showcase in the city of Andradas, south of the State of Minas Gerais. There, they evaluate 100 varieties and codes to determine their adaptation to climatic conditions, especially for the Brazilian market. NIRP has also supported their Brazilian clients so they can participate in technical missions to Colombia, Ecuador and Kenya.
