Syngenta Flowers recently hosted 60-plus growers and brokers at a fall field day last month in Anderson, S.C. The field day was an opportunity for Syngenta Flowers and Fafard to answer questions with growers on this year’s peat shortage.
Syngenta indicates growers are considering growing media with less peat and more bark, coir and other ingredients.
“We’re able to show them how we make these mixes and how our genetics respond to them,” says Jamie Gibson, technical services manager with Syngenta.
