Mirage

In 2018 we trialed Mirage for the first time. In 2019 we have exchanged the complete red poinsettia assortment by Mirage.

• The perfect Allrounder • Compact to medium habit, ideal for the most used potzises, space efficient and grower friendly variety • Vibrant red bracts with long-lasting cyathia • Low or non PGR requirement depending on culture • Big cyathia

“Mirage is the ideal Christmas star for growers and consumers.”

Mirage has a compact growth, is growing slowly, requires little PGR and has a beautiful V-shape. The intense red colour is eye-catching. It is for sure one of the most striking colours on the market. In addition, Mirage has less stretching in short day, gives little failure, has a great shelf life and beautiful cyathia. It is an easy and strong plant. Mirage is the ideal Christmas star for grower and consumer.

What is also characteristic for Mirage is the little need of PGR. We spray on average 80% less PGR on Mirage than on other varieties.

Mirage is one of our best red varieties because the plant builds up harmoniously with a very good branching and strong roots. This variety has a great benefit because we can universally applicable it for a 6 cm mini till a 17 cm bush. Cramer Jungpflanzen

invest in this variety for the next few years as well, with ever-increasing numbers. The Mirage has many strengths: V-shaped bearing, very robust stem (even when grown in a 16 cm pot it does not need elastic), very easy to bag. It branches out very well, the color is a nice RED, very pleasant. It’s the exactly tight precocity for our Sicily, it does not defoliate even if cultivated at high density per sqm. The shelf life is excellent. And last but not least, the use of plant growth regulators on this plant is almost zero.

"There is only very less need to use PGR and it has one of the best attractive bright red bract colors with very nice and long lasting cyathia."

We have a large production of poinsettias, and we always try to improve ourselves by looking for better alternatives to the varieties we grow. 3 years ago, we tried Mirage and we immediately realized that Mirage met our needs, so we wanted to Florguarino

Each new price listing shall cancel the previous price with regard to orders placed after such new price listing. 4.2 T he price of the Products is exclusive of any value added tax or any other applicable tax (which the Buyer shall pay in addition when it is due to pay for the Products) and further costs to be paid by the Buyer, including amongst others, packaging cost, quality assurance costs and/or phytosanitary inspections, import duties, government and other regulatory levies, and any other fees. Prices are expressed in Euros and shall be paid in Euros, unless otherwise indicated in the invoice. 4.3 S yngenta shall invoice the Buyer for the price of the Products. Syngenta shall determine the date of issuing such invoice in compliance with relevant local regulations. 4.4 E ach invoice for the price of the Products will be paid within 30 days after the invoice date at Syngenta’s offices or by deposit or transfer into a bank account indicated by Syngenta. 4.5 T he Buyer shall make all payments due under the Contract without any deduction whether by way of set-off, counterclaim or otherwise unless the Buyer has a valid court order requiring an amount equal to such deduction to be paid by Syngenta to the Buyer. 4.6 If the Buyer fails to make any payment under the Contract on the due date (without any prejudice to its other rights or remedies), the Buyer is in de- fault. In the event of late payment for deliveries made in the Netherlands, the Buyer shall pay 1% of the interest per month or per part of a month on the invoice amount as of the time at which the Buyer is in default. In the event of late payment for deliveries outside the Netherlands, the Buyer shall pay 1.5 % per month or per part of a month on the invoice amount as of the time at which the Buyer is in default. In the event of the Buyer‘s defaults, Syngenta has the right to charge any exchange rate loss incurred as a result to the Buyer’s account. 4.7 If payment in instalments has been agreed, the entire remaining amount shall be immediately payable, in the event of late payment of an instalment. The stipulations of Condition 4.6, shall apply by analogy. 4.8 W ithout prejudice to its other rights and remedies, Syngenta shall have the right to immediately cancel any orders accepted by Syngenta, or to delay the delivery of Products ordered therein, if the Buyer’s account with the Syngenta Group shows that the Buyer is overdue in paying any Syngenta invoices. 4.9 If the Buyer is in default with regard to one or more of its obligations, all extra judicial collection costs incurred to obtain payment as well as judicial costs shall be for the Buyer’s account, with a minimum of the invoice amount. 4.10 S yngenta reserves the right to not carry out, or no longer carry out, orders or agreements if previous deliveries have not been paid for by the Buyer or the Buyer has not fulfilled or it’s at risk of not fulfilling his obligations to Syngenta. The Buyer is required to pay the damage suffered by Syngenta due to this. Syngenta is not responsible for any damage suffered by the Buyer as a result of not carrying out orders. 4.11 If there is any doubt at Syngenta’s discretion regarding the ability of the Buyer to pay, Syngenta will be entitled to defer performances until the Buyer has provided surety for the payment. If the Buyer has not provided surety for the payment within fourteen (14) days after being requested to do so, Syngenta is entitled to terminate the agreement by cancellation. In this case the Buyer will be liable for expenses incurred by Syngenta. 5. Property and Risk 5.1 O wnership of the Products shall only be transferred to the Buyer once they have been fully paid for and the Buyer has fulfilled all of its other obliga- tions towards Syngenta. Payment refers to the full payment of the invoiced price, including value added tax, applicable interest and any other costs as stated in Condition 4.2. The above stipulation shall apply irrespective of the manner in which the delivered Products or the Products resulting from them have been planted and/or connected to a medium and/or substrate. 5.2 P roducts delivered by Syngenta, covered by the retention of title pursuant to Condition 5.1, can only be resold or used in the framework of ordinary business operations. In the event that the Products are resold by the Buyer, the Buyer shall require from its buyers a retention of title and, to ensure by means of a perpetual clause to be imposed, that third parties undertake to immediately send Syngenta the records of consignment numbers of the Products, so that all the delivered Products can be traced to third parties. 5.3 T he risk of damage to or loss of the Products shall be borne exclusively by the Buyer as from their Delivery. 5.4 F or Products which have been supplied but not yet paid-for, the Buyer shall hold the Products on Syngenta’s behalf and shall keep the Products separate from those of the Buyer and third parties, shall sufficiently insure the Products against loss and/or damage and shall identify the Products as Syngenta’s property. At Syngenta’s request, the Buyer shall provide proof that it has subscribed to an insurance policy. Until the Buyer has paid for the Products in full, the Buyer undertakes to take all necessary measures in order to preserve the integrity and quality of the Products. The Buyer is not permitted to encumber the Products or to vest any other rights in them. 5.5 T he Buyer’s right to possession of Products belonging to Syngenta will cease immediately if an Insolvency Event occurs in relation to the Buyer. Where the Buyer’s right to possession has terminated, the Buyer grants Syngenta, its agents, employees and Affiliates irrevocable permission at any time to enter any premises where the Products are or may be stored to recover them. This Condition 5.5 will survive termination of the Contract for any reason. 6.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Buyer’s use of the Products is limited to production of a single commercial crop, whether of fresh produce, forage, fiber, grain or any other crop. In the preceding

sentence, “production” shall exclude producing seeds for replanting or vegetative reproduction. Unless expressly permitted by law, use of the seed, including the parental lines that may be unintentionally contained therein, for research, breeding or molecular or genetic characterization is strictly prohibited. Buyer has and shall acquire no rights in relation to parental lines that may be unintentionally contained therein. In the case of the Products being ornamental plant culture products for which plant breeder’s rights have been applied for and/or granted, only non-recurring flower or plant production is allowed.

Buyer shall not reproduce, display or otherwise use any Trademarks without Syngenta’s prior written permission. Unless agreed otherwise in writing, the Buyer is not permitted to use Trademarks, signs and other marks used by Syngenta, for its own products or services, nor to suggest a (direct or indirect) commercial connection with the Syngenta Group, with the excep- tion of trading the Products in their original packaging on which Trademarks, signs and other marks have been applied by Syngenta. If the delivered Products are resold, this restriction shall also be imposed upon the Buyer’s own buyer and to any subsequent buyers. 8.2  Packaging. The Buyer shall not change or remove the Trademarks (including, without limitation, corporate or trade names and labels, any bag tag, or any indication of any intellectual property right of any nature whatsoever belonging to Syngenta), from the packaging of the Products, unless with prior written permission by Syngenta. 8.3  Traceability. The Buyer hereby acknowledges that any marketing of a Product on which any of the label, batch number, bag tag or sell-by date have been removed, erased or altered, represents a serious breach of these Conditions and of the Contract. Such breach shall entitle Syngenta in its sole discretion to terminate the Contract immediately without any compensation whatsoever in Buyer’s favor. In such a case, the Buyer shall bear all the legal, financial and judicial consequences which may arise therefrom, at its sole expense and risk. 9.

Furthermore, if the Buyer maintains the mutant, Syngenta has the right to request from the Buyer, within a period of two (2) years after the detection of the mutant, materials of the mutant for testing purposes and for any other purposes without charge. The Buyer shall ensure that this Condition 9.3(i) also applies to its customers, who shall then exercise their reporting obligation to the Buyer. (ii) The Buyer shall indemnify Syngenta for any damages Syngenta has incurred as a result of any violation by the Buyer of Syngenta’s plant breeder’s rights or other intellectual property rights. (iii) The Buyer undertakes to fully cooperate as desired by Syngenta, including cooperating with the collection of evidence, in the event that Syngenta is engaged in legal proceedings with regard to plant breeder’s rights or other intellectual property rights.

Statement related to Genetically Modified Organisms All the Products currently sold by Syngenta in Europe, Africa and the Middle East have been bred by conventional plant breeding methods and with parent components that have not been genetically modified, without using genetic modification techniques leading to genetically modified organisms as defined in Directive 2001/18/EC on the deliberate release into the environment of genetically modified organisms. The methods and processes used in the development and maintenance of those varieties are aimed to achieve high purity standards and minimizing the risk of off-types or adventitious presence of other plant material, including genetically modified material, as defined by the applicable laws or regulations. Seed production has been carried out in accordance with existing requirements related to marketing of varieties and seed production rules including specified isolation distances. The Buyer acknowledges that, although unlikely, the risk of adventitious presence of genetically modified organisms cannot however be totally excluded. 11. Warranty 11.1 S yngenta shall make its best efforts for the Products to conform to their specifications and labels as much as possible, provided that they are handled by the Buyer with utmost care. No guarantees apply to the product specifications. 11.2 T he Buyer shall check upon Delivery of the Products the condition of the Products and absence of visible defects of the Products, and shall bear the expenses and assume the risks related to such inspection. 11.3 A ny claim or reservation regarding visible defects (such as but not limited to differences in weight, defective packaging, errors in the numbers of parcels or packages, exterior appearance), shall be made on the carrier’s receipt and confirmed by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, sent to Syngenta within five(5) working days as from the Delivery of the Products, with the exception of seed trays and young plants for which claims shall be submitted within forty eight (48) hours of their Delivery. The Buyer shall specify and justify the nature of its claim or reservation, and identify the defective Products by their batch number. 11.4 A ny claim regarding invisible defects as of the time of Delivery (such as but not limited to moisture content, specific purity, seed coating and grading, germination rate, trueness to type) shall be made by Buyer by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt within five (5) working days from the discovery of such invisible defect and/or from the time at which the Buyer could reasonably have discovered the defect, but in no event no more than one (1) year from Delivery, after which Buyer shall be barred from asserting such a claim, and Syngenta may no longer be held liable for, defective Products. 11.5 S yngenta shall not be held liable for any defect under Conditions 11.3 or 11.4 unless (i) Buyer has notified Syngenta following the relevant conditions set forth in this Condition 11, and (ii) Buyer has provided Syngenta after receipt of the notice with a reasonable opportunity to examine the Products.

The results of this (re) inspection shall be binding for both Parties, without prejudice to the parties’ right to submit disputes regarding the consequences of such results to the institutions mentioned in the Condition 17. 12.

The Buyer undertakes to subscribe to and maintain an appropriate insurance against claims arising from the indemnification provided for in this Condition 12.5, and an insurance certificate shall be submitted to Syngenta at Syngenta’s first request. 12.6 A ll information given in Syngenta’s catalogue or otherwise provided by Syngenta, or by any agent or representative on Syngenta’s behalf, relating to the Products, including but not limited to varieties, varietal characteristics or periods of maturity or otherwise relating to the performance of the Products and cultivation advice, is given for general guidance only.

Applicable Law Any Contract between Syngenta and the Buyer shall be governed by law of the Netherlands. The competent Court of Amsterdam or, at Syngenta’s discretion, any other competent court according to applicable law, is exclusively competent. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded from these Conditions 18.
