Viola Quicktime series

Viola Quicktime series

Flowering faster than any other series used for the same production schedules, our new Quicktime Viola allows you to start your viola crop up to two weeks later and still ship full-bodied pots on time in Spring. With reduced labour and less culture time needed in the greenhouse, the cost savings are quick to add up! Almost daylength neutral reaction and free- and hyperflowering selection criteria make Quicktime the best option for late-potted winter-produced viola crops.

The Quicktime series includes the colours White Blotch, Yellow Blue Jump Up, Yellow Violet Jump Up, Blue Purple Jump Up, Lemon Jump Up and Mickey, and provides bright colour in Spring and Autumn gardens.

Early Sales 2020 New Varieties Available Now From PanAmerican Seed

Early Sales 2020 New Varieties Available Now From PanAmerican Seed

A short list of early-release varieties gives growers access to top-performing new introductions for the upcoming Spring 2019 season – a year early.

WEST CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, October 2018: On October 1, PanAmerican Seed released a select group of new 2020 introductions for sale. This provides growers a chance to purchase larger quantities and sell the latest seed genetics during the 2019 spring season rather than only offering small quantities for sampling. This early-release timeline closes the loop on the company’s strategy to trial with growers before introduction to confirm performance, and encourages growers to use the best new varieties a year in advance of traditional availability timelines.

The early-sales list includes varieties from all of PanAmerican Seed’s product categories: Annuals, Perennials, Edibles, Cut Flowers and Potted Plants. From cool to warm-season varieties, distributors can sell seed or provide trial seeds to their greenhouse customers. The timing is also ideal, as the main production period for early-Spring and Spring crops is just starting in many markets. Items like Spreading Petunia Easy Wave® Lavender Sky Blue ,  Spreading Pansy Cool Wave® Strawberry Swirl and Raspberry Swirl , Osteospermum Akila® Sunset Shades , and Salvia Salvatore Blue do not require long days, so Winter and early-Spring production is not an issue.

“It is important that our customers have access to our newest genetics as soon as we have the seed in stock, along with relevant growing information and marketing support. We are excited to offer 31 new varieties a year ahead of the traditional industry timelines,” says Scott Rusch, Product Development Director at PanAmerican Seed. “The improvements that our breeders, product managers and trial collaborators have seen for the last several years solve key grower challenges. We also have several innovative new products that will help growers generate interest with consumers and landscapers.”
