India being the second largest user of tomato hybrids after the USA, Camson's in-house scientists have devoted their research facilities to develop about 11 varieties of tomato. These high-yielding, premium quality varieties are harvest ready within 55-70 days of transplanting; the performance of the tomato hybrids have been noteworthy. Of these, Tista, an excellent yellow tomato hybrid, is the first of its kind in the country. Ganga, a TLC tolerant variety developed by the company, has a proven record of yielding 55 metric tonnes per acre.
The six hybrid chilly seeds developed by Camson using CGMS technology received overwhelmingly encouraging responses from local and national market. The most noted and award-winning item in this range is the Anthocyanin enriched black chilly, named Kali. Gomti and Pennar hybrids consisting of fresh and dry chillies have also been successful in winning domestic markets.
