“When it comes to new varieties and new programs, we do everything with the grower in mind,” says Ori Danziger, Deputy CEO. “Over the past few years, we’ve had a larger international team looking at our new genetics. That knowledgeable team not only helps us choose the best plants, they help us choose varieties that can solve the challenges growers face every day.” Those solutions help growers work more efficiently, ultimately allowing their business to be more profitable. “We’re talking about genetics that require less inputs, series’ that stay naturally uniform and varieties that are easier and less time intensive to grow. Best of all, these plants look great longer at retail, provide excellent performance in the home garden and the feedback from our customers’ trials is excellent” he added.
Amir Zuker, VP Research and Development Manager adds, “This year marks a real burst of innovation that we have been working on for a long time. We are excited to see the results of precise breeding and the success of the Verbena series that proves to be powdery mildew resistant. The Verbena series has great uniformity and a wide range of bright colors that do not cycle out of colors.
