Partnership Varinova

Both Syngenta Flowers and Varinova have worked for many years in Cyclamen breeding developing the most attractive innovative Cyclamen varieties. By bringing two breeding programs and assortments together last year, we created the opportunity to use the strengths of both programs.

Ahead of their time

MiniCyclamen

Switching to SeeWhy ®

We switched to using SeeWhy ® Cyclamen for our 6x9cm Mini Cyclamen carry pack a couple of years ago. We found that the synchronicity of flowering across the ran- ge, combined with the compact habit of each plant means we can grow the plants directly in to the mixed pack.

How you benefit

SeeWhy ® lets you plan and produce more efficiently and saves time, money and effort. Worry-free production – that’s our promise.

Natalie Porter Happy Plants

Developing compactly – perfect harmony between flowers and plant

+ Aligned flowering windows within and between colours Developing uniformly – high uniformity within 3 weeks

+ Worry-free production with our early cyclamen Developing early – up to 7-10 days faster plant bulking

"SeeWhy offers us efficiency over picking over huge batches of individual pots to find colour, then manually putting together packs each week. That makes a significant difference to our workload each week, as well as to our bottom line."

+ Stays compact even in full bloom

PGR Applications

Pests

Not recommended gibberellic acid will accelerate flowering but can result in soft stems and distorted flowers.

Aphids, Thrips, Cyclamen mites, Fungus gnats and Shore Flies can be vectors for Fusarium.

Diseases

Spacing

Thielaviopsis: old roots brown, tips white. Cylindrocarpon: roots from top brown & wet. Rhizoctonia, Sclerotinia: pale white leaf stem. Pythium, Phytophthora: roots black, soft rot. Insects: roots eaten. Other: Botrytis, Fusarium, Erwinia.

No spacing for the first 3 to 4 weeks after potting for a better micro-climate. Spacing after this time will improve the quality of the plant, keeps it compact gives early flowering and improves resistance to diseases. Space the plants in time before they touch each other. That way the plant grows round and compact and the leaf stems remain shorter and stronger.

Fertilization & Substrate

During the first growing period the plant needs to develop many leaves. With more leaves the plant becomes stronger and more flowers can be produced. Therefore, it is advisable to add a bit more nitrogen in the fertilizer during the first growing stage. The optimal proportion of N:K is 1:1 (15-5-15). The first growing phase takes approximately 8-12 weeks after potting, depending on size and variety/type of the young plant. In the second growing period the plant develops flowers buds and flowers. In this stage potassium is an important element to keep the plants compact and strong as well as to develop stronger flower stems and flowers. Also, Calcium and Silica have a positive influence on the quality of the flowers.

Light

Cyclamen require a light intensity of around 40,000 lux. Shade at 50,000 lux. Recommend whitewashing of the glasshouse or shading screens. Too much shading generally reduces the number of flowers and should be regulated properly to avoid that the leaves become too soft and can easily wilt.

Growers are kindly invited to reach out to their local distributor to purchase our genetics.

Irrigation

Keep in mind that smaller pots have little water retention capacities. Watering therefore should be done more often than with larger pots. When the days are getting shorter continue with an irrigation every 2 to 3 days. Avoid getting the plants too wet. There are several ways of irrigation: from above using sprinkler, through drip or via ebb and flow systems. During the first growing period it is easy to irrigate from above. In the second growing stage this will be harder since the leaves cover the pot ball and irrigation is therefore uneven. As soon as flowers appear, we advise not to irrigate from above. The flowers will get “dirty” and may develop Botrytis. This reduces the ornamental value.

Tips & Tricks

Choose a pot with many holes for drainage and use potting soil with sufficient air for good development of the roots. Do not plant the corm too deep when transplanting. Plant the tuber just under the soil with the heart of the plant and the upper side of the tuber just above the soil. By doing so the heart of the plant develops better and the leaf stems remain strong.

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.

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. Terms of use of the Products and usage 6.1 Instructions setting forth the restrictions of use of the Products by the Buyer and subsequent buyers may be included in the Products’ packaging and/or labelling. By using the Products, the Buyer or further buyers confirm his/their commitment(s) to comply with these restrictions. The Products are exclusively intended for the growing of crops for human or animal usage and/or consumption. The Products and the packaging are proprietary to Syngenta Group or its licensors and are protected by intellectual property rights. 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. Violations shall result in an immediately payable penalty of € 1.00 per reproduced flower or plant. Besides the penalty Syngenta shall retain its right as a licence holder to recover the actually incurred damage from the violating party. Buyer further agrees not to remove the bag-tag and/or labelling from the Products’ packages and or labelling. 6.2 T he Buyer shall impose no less stringent restrictions than the restrictions mentioned in this Condition 6 upon its own buyers. 7. Access to premises The Buyer shall, if requested, give Syngenta, its agents, employees and Affiliates access to its premises where the Products are located at any time to enable Syngenta to inspect the usage of such Products. Syngenta shall notify the Buyer of its visit in a timely manner. 8. Packaging and traceability of Products; use of trademarks, signs and other indications 8.1 Use of trademarks, signs and other indications. All of the trademarks, service marks and logos displayed on the Products, in the Contract and/ or in any document or website referenced by them (the “Trademarks”) are registered and unregistered trademarks of the Syngenta Group, or third parties who have licensed their trademarks to the Syngenta Group. 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. Plant Breeders’ rights and other intellectual property rights 9.1 T he Buyer shall comply with the restrictions and limitations imposed on the Products by the UPOV Convention and its national implementations which are hereby incorporated by reference, and when applicable Council Regulation No 2100/94 of 27 July 1994 on Community plant variety rights, which are also hereby incorporated by reference. 9.2 P roducts protected by a breeder’s right applied for or granted in the Netherlands or any other country or by a contractual transfer provision may not be used to further reproduce the variety. 9.3 Buyer shall comply with these additional obligations: (i) If the Buyer finds a mutant in the Products, the Buyer shall report this immediately to Syngenta by registered letter, and shall make available to Syngenta materials of the mutant for testing purposes and for any other purposes without charge. 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. (iv) The Buyer shall report all sales of Products as may be required by relevant royalty collecting agencies administering rights in the Products. If the Buyer is a licensee of Syngenta the Buyer shall ensure that its sub-licensees, where relevant, also comply with this Condition 9.3(iv). 10. 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.
