Vilmorin-Mikado, platinum sponsor of the 2nd International Symposium on Carrot and other Apiaceae


The Second “Carrot and Other Apiaceae International Symposium” will take place in Krakow, (Poland), from 19 to 22 September 2018. After the remarkable success of the first edition held in Angers (France) in 2014, Vilmorin-Mikado, “your global carrot expert”, is honored to renew its platinum sponsorship.
