US: What to expect at the California Spring Trials 2020

In just a couple of months, the California Spring Trials will be held again, from March 28 - April 1. Breeders will present their newest varieties and are currently doing their utmost best to have them flowering on time. This year, there again will be some changes. We already heard that Proven Winners will not participate at the CAST this year and that Grolink will not be a host location anymore, resulting in 11 companies finding a new site.

So, what to expect from this year's edition? Below, we listed important points one has to take into account when touring the west coast of the USA and the main differences compared to last year.

Like last year, most locations are open 8 am - 5 pm, but if you are interested in visiting any of the locations, it is recommended (and sometimes required) that you make a reservation. 

So, let's take a closer look to the changes for 2020 so far:

The California Spring Trials is a week-long event, held at 14 locations throughout California (Click here to see the entire list of locations) It is a launching ground for some of the newest plant varieties, signage and packaging products, and merchandising programs and concepts. In addition, many locations include PGR experiments, outdoor trialing, and technical information and help. 

Never been to the CAST? Here is an impression; our photo report of 2019.

Is your company also participating in the California Spring Trials and would you like to put one of your products in the spotlight? Feel free to send us an email.

There is no fee to participate, but the trials are not open to the general public (only for businesses and their employees associated with the horticulture industry) and transportation and logistics are the responsibility of the attendee.
