It was the third year in a row that the company organizes PopUp Shows, every time in another location and with another topic across Germany.
Syngenta Flowers Spring Flowers and Perennials PopUp Show was held at the beginning of March, up at Emsflower, one of Europe’s largest growers with an impressive Garden World experience center for visitors. According to the many visitors it offered an excellent variety presentation accompanied by two inspiring lectures.
Holger Nennmann from the Chamber of Agriculture of North Rhine-Westphalia discussed plant protection measures for spring flowers and early flowering perennials, Günther Buckermann, Technical specialist at Syngenta Flowers spoke about alternatives to Tilt and the role of genetics on plant protection. Syngenta Flowers’ breeding programs are focused on the reduction of plant protection and plant control. The primrose series Mitra, which is genetically compact and therefore suitable for cultivation in 9 to 10.5 cm pots without the use of PGR is a good example.
