HortCast E1

HortCast Episode 6 is hosted by Craig White - Market Development Agronomist for Bayer Crop Science Australia

Australia. Craig chats with Australia and New Zealand Sales Manager Danielle Buller, and Greg Davies, Field R&D Agronomist about recent industry events, plus new developments, that help Australian growers produce healthy, nutritious and sustainable fresh food.

In this episode

In this episode we cover topics including Bayer Vegetable seeds, the significant offering of Seminis® and De Ruiter®, new innovative vegetables that are easier to harvest, and key outtakes from the recent Lockyer Valley Field Day featuring “Seminis® High Rise broccoli", new spinach varieties and other great vegetables, and Hort Connections, where snacking tomatoes were taste-tested by lucky attendees.

Greg Davies fills us in about the new label extension registration of Luna® Sensation for control of sclerotinia in Lettuce, how it does this, and how it is performing in the field.
