Research and Development
More than 3,000 varieties that are kept in the company’s genetic bank are carefully reviewed and some of them are chosen as the parental individuals that, through carefully designed crossing programs, will produce about 60,000 seedlings each year.
A meticulous process of evaluation and selection of these codes will give rise after 4 years to the new commercial varieties.
In 2017, the company initiated a breeding program in alstroemeria, with the aim of developing competitive varieties in the market. Several codes with very promising characteristics are currently under pre-commercial introduction.
The company is currently evaluating a series of Hydrangea macrophylla codes in partnership with Mansuino, aimed at the selection of cultivars suitable for production in tropical conditions, with the most innovative types and colors to offer to the world markets.
