Green Fuse Botanicals has tripled its greenhouse space with a move to new facilities in Santa Paula, Calif. The new location at Fides Oro gives Green Fuse the opportunity to test and trial many more plants.
“This is a big step forward in our ability to evaluate plants and bringnew products to market,” says Steve Jones, Green Fuse founder. “It gives us the flexibility to trial a wide variety of genera in different growing environments. With this expanded control, we can closely replicate our customers’ conditions in North America and overseas.”
Previously, Green Fuse was trialing new plants at GroLink in Oxnard, Calif. They will continue that strong working relationship, including producing Ipomoea ‘Sweet Georgia’ crops for the coming season.
“The Santa Paula site was needed to accommodate the expanding genetics we plan to introduce in the future,” Jones says. “With the move, we’re a stronger trialing resource for our international breeding partners, and we’re able to work more closely with Fides Oro, who is a primary producer for Green Fuse.”
Green Fuse will be hosting its 2013 Spring Trials at the new location, 15245 West Telegraph Rd., Santa Paula, CA 93060.
