From soil to bag : ERNEST TURC CONTROLS THE QUALITY CHAIN
To guarantee the quality of its products, Ernest TURC has an in vitro laboratory which allows to regenerate and multiply certain varieties. In the laboratory, viruses carried by certain species are eliminated, especially cannas, in an effort to maintain high sanitary quality.
Ernest TURC is also grower, and grows its own dahlias, cannas, alstroemeria and agapanthus. It also settles production agreements with other selected dahlia growers in the heart of Authion Valley, in Anjou. This valley is well-known for the quality and richness of its soils. Young shoots are planted between March and June, then they grow and bloom throughout the summer. During the flowering period, the tubers develop gradually in the soil.They are then harvested in October, graded and dried, before being packed by different packing machines in Brain-sur-l’Authion (49). These bulbs are offered to professional or amateur gardeners in the spring, according to the French or foreign distribution needs.
