The 1st set of production is now in propagation.
Hartwig Bull, breeder of Helianthus ‘SunCatcher’ brought the first set of URC for rooting in to the propagtion.
URC are picked from own stock. Growers in the US would buy it from Kientzler North America – the Innovaplant Farm in Costa Rica via their brokers.
The propagation area is equipped with 6,5 ft wide ebb & flow benches, covered with polytunnels to keep RH high enough. Due to the winter season some HPS lights are used. The media is a 1″ Jiffy in a 104 cell tray.
