A central issue of the FlowerTrials shows of Selecta one was also the future of the young plant technology. Selecta one introduced its trademark ROCS at this year’s IPM. These are 34 in substrate rooted cuttings in a Multi Media strip by Visser for fully automatic processing in a Visser AutoStix machine. At the FlowerTrials, customers and interested people could now get more information on-site about the AutoStix technology by Visser Horti Systems with young plants from Selecta one.
