2020 Poinsetia

The future of your Poinsettia is our motivation

Dear customer,

We are proud to present to you the new catalogue in which established names such as Mira, Titan and Mars cannot be missed. But how about Mirage, a real all-rounder who can handle many pot sizes with ease? Moreover, Mirage needs little to no growth regulators. In short, a variety that offers you many conveniences. Furthermore, we should not forget to mention Lyra, Magma and Vega. Of course you want more than just good breeding. The characteristics of the variety offer you possibilities, but these still need to be converted into results. This starts with healthy and strong cuttings, good roots with young plants and, if necessary, expert advice.

Every day, more than 2,000 Syngenta employees dedicate themselves to ensuring that we can meet your requirements. We do this with a great deal of passion and dedication. From breeder to customer service, from production employee to sales representative; your results are our top priority. Poinsettia is an important crop for Syngenta Flowers and we are serious about developing top varieties. For this reason, we recently recruited another breeder. Continuous innovation is our answer to the challenges that the market and the environment bring to you and us. We are ready for it!

2

Our team of specialists - representatives, product ma- nagers, cultivation specialists, breeders and researchers - will be happy to support you in realizing the possibili- ties offered by our varieties. We are ready to deliver the best cuttings and young plants to you every day, so that you can take the first step towards a good end result without any worries. Your satisfaction ultimately determines how well we have done our jobs. Your opinion counts, always! That is why we think it is important that you should always have the opportunity to express your wishes, your complaints and your compliments to us.

We would like to hear your ideas, how we can serve you better or how we can better solve possible pro- blems. Please let us know. We can then act on it! We invite you to complete your Poinsettia wishes with the help of this catalogue. Our representatives will be happy to help you with this.

With kind regards,

Mark Schermer Head of Flowers Europe Middle East, Africa

Varieties with intermediary resistance will show less serious disease symptoms or damage than susceptible varieties under comparable environmental circumstances and/or pest or disease pres- sure.
