I was recently invited to attend a field day hosted by Seminis seed company at its field station in Felda, FL. This was part of the company’s Innovation Experience field days, which are hosted in different locations across the country.
Adam Marschel, a Seminis Market Manager for the Eastern U.S. and Canada, gave me a personalized tour of plots to see the newest varieties available (or soon to be) to growers. One observation I’ve made in recent years is that seed companies are cycling in new vegetable varieties more frequently these day — similar to how row crops have a steady stream of new materials year after year.
