Vincent®s Choice... Your Choice

When you think summer, you think Sunflowers. The Helianthus Vincent®s are top varieties from breeder Sakata Ornamentals.

Vincent®s Sunflowers are special because of their large round petals and the fact that the flower heads stand up straight, as though they look you proudly in the eye! In addition they have striking colours and are very long lasting. For each interior a ray of Sun(flower)light in the house.

Vincent®s are strong and less sensitive to day length than other Sunflowers, which allows growers to produce high quality crops early, mid and late season!

Downy Mildew Resistant

The Natural Answer to Downy Mildew infection in Sunflowers

  • Downy mildew has created an increasing problem in Sunflower crops for the last 10 years
  • It can be categorised as a fungal infection that is transmitted primarily through ground (systemic) infection and secondarily through air-born infection
  • Up until now, the only methods used to fight the disease were use of chemicals and crop rotation
  • Chemical pesticides are environmentally unfriendly, prone to development of resistance and often subject to legislation
  • Crop rotation is impractical, costly and ineffective
  • The ideal solution is a variety that is naturally resistant to the fungus. In vegetables, mildew-resistant varieties have been bred and implemented on a wider scale
  • Following 3 years of successful testing under European conditions, Sakata introduces a new sunflower variety they can confidently claim to be Downy Mildew Resistant
  • For the ISF definition of Resistance please see: http://worldseed.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Resistance_terminology_20121.pdf
  • In 3 years of testing in EMEA under varying conditions, no systemic infection has ever been recorded. Where air-born infection is noted, as spots on the leaves for example, the varieties ‘step in’ to exclude the infiltrator and heal naturally.
