Research or Commercial Wasabi Growing?
More and more people are putting their hands up to become a Wasabi grower as they see the demand for new flavors increasing. This together with continuing number of scientific studies showing that Wasabia japonica has a large number of very good health benefits – one of the major ones being its ability to kill most cancer cells in the human body without any adverse effects.
However, these prospective Wasabi growers appear to be unclear whether they want to set up a Wasabi Growing Research Farm with only a few plants “to try” for the next five years or so while they figure things out, or actually want a commercial wasabi growing farm with a solid ROI in 18 months or so.
It is this sitting on the fence I find difficult to understand. Yes, I realise that it is fear that generates this sitting on the fence, but with 28 years of growing this unique plant in many different environments, I can categorically say that the information is readily available for those who actually want to commercially grow Wasabia japonica.
The desire to reinvent the wheel seems to be an overwhelming attitude. Even the centres of higher learning (Universities, Colleges, High Schools) are even encouraging their students to set up final projects to find the parameters for growing Wasabia japonica in small numbers. This in my view is a complete waste of both the Students and the Universities time because this information is available and has been used commercially by ourselves for nearly 3 decades, and in Japan for thousands of years. This attitude for repeating work with known outcomes does not benefit the student in any shape or form. They do not learn anything new, and knowledge is not advanced in any way.
So let me come back to the question I asked at the beginning.
If you want to “try” a few plants then do you want to start from basic principles knowing nothing and just stumble through things until something positive happens. Or do you want to at least start from a point where you have the basic information on hand. If so then you can purchase the Wasabi Growers Primer at USD$497.00 which contains all the basic information to get results with from the start.
If you want to become a Commercial Wasabi Grower from the beginning without going through all the false starts and directions, then you will need to have a mentor who has the practical knowledge to ensure you do not make a costly mistake. If that is the case then you need to contact Michel Van Mellaerts immediately.
Michel Van Mellaerts (The Wasabi Maestro) is the recognized World authority and expert on the practical Growing, Processing and Marketing of Wasabia japonica. He and his wife have been commercially growing Wasabia japonica longer than anyone else outside Japan.
Trained as an Engineer he has invented and installed many improved growing systems into their farms. These enable high quality Wasabi to be grown anywhere in the World.
The Wasabi Mastroes have set up commercial Wasabi growing farms from the Arctic Circle to Southern New Zealand, including the Equator. They have worked with individual growers, national governments, and investment groups on four continents.
These growing systems have reduced growing times by nearly 67%, improved yield and quality of the Wasabi rhizome, and increased the levels of active ingredients by nearly 100%. It is these active ingredients that independent scientific studies show kills cancer cells and improves human health.
They pioneered the use of Wasabia japonica in the Nutraceutical and Medical industries. They are at the leading edge of research into the benefits of Wasabi on human and animal health.
The Wasabi Maestroes offer a Training and Consultancy service for potential and actual Wasabi growers who only want to learn from the best. Others spend their time floundering around trying to find out what information is useful and what isn’t.
The Training has been proven and improved over the last 27 years plus of personal commercial Wasabi growing. This has been hands on, getting wet and dirty work – not guesswork from behind a desk.
