Pelargoniums are sensitive to ethylene during transport and can respond by dropping their petals and yellowing their leaves. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable during shipping. A prolonged period of time in the dark can lead to leaf yellowing and petal drop.
To fight this, Chrysal and Syngenta Flowers have combined forces and introduced Largo, a product to prevent leaf yellowing and petal shatter. It makes the quality of the plant less dependent on the conditions during transport and to making them stay beautiful longer, thus extending the sales period and reducing waste.
Combining Chrysal’s post-harvest technical and product knowledge with Syngenta Flowers’ world-renowned expertise on genetics, this partnership is to bring more sustainability to the value chain.
“Chrysal is committed to offering innovative solutions for the horticultural supply chain, from growers to consumers. Together with Syngenta we want to help growers and retailers to get the best quality plants. We are excited to introduce our new product Largo,” says Peter Vriends, CEO of Chrysal International.
Felix Schlösser, Head of Marketing Syngenta Flowers Europe adds: ”Syngenta Flowers brings the best genetics to our growers. In order to be even more successful, we truly see value in partnerships as we now have with Chrysal. It is an example of a great collaboration and allows to combine the strengths from both companies and help our growers and retailers continuously deliver quality plants.”
