Quickstep in a tray

"New product form will ensure plant quality is maintained during long-distance transport"

In the 2019 season, Syngenta's rooted cuttings of Pelargonium and Poinsettia from Africa will be packed and shipped in improved packaging.

The new product form, Quickstep in a tray, will ensure plant quality is maintained during long-distance transport. It will also give growers more flexibility.

With the current Quickstep packaging, cuttings require immediate transplantation and can sometimes arrive damaged. But Quickstep in a tray holds plants more securely, preventing damage. It also offers growers the opportunity to unpack the cuttings and leave them in their trays for 24-48 hours before planting.

The first crops to adopt Quickstep in a tray this season will be Pelargonium and Poinsettia. Poinsettia cuttings, in particular, are vulnerable to damage during transportation. Quickstep in a tray offers a much improved way to transport them safely.
