Successful farming is no easy feat. It is as much a matter of what you grow, as how you grow it.
Seminis tomato SV0215TH, or simply, 0215 quickly became a grower favourite after it was launched in Australia a little over three years ago. Thanks to its reliable and trusted performance, 0215 has become the cornerstone of many growing programs.
Seminis National Sales Manager, Darren Wood said this reliability has seen 0215 planted crop after crop and farmers have gained valuable insight into how the variety performs under different conditions.
“Thanks to their support, we at Seminis have learned more about 0215 and sought to understand how by managing certain agronomic elements, variety performance can be maximised.
“We’re committed to sharing this knowledge with our valued 0215 growers and have developed a series of agronomic and growing tip information sheets. These resources contain valuable advice and guidance to help growers understand how certain conditions may impact fruit development and performance,” Darren said.
This resource library gives guidance and advice on topics such as plant spacing and pruning, weather conditions and management of hollow or puffy fruit. Prepared by independent consultants and drawing on grower experience, these documents help growers manage 0215.
Darren said that the local Seminis team are committed to 0215’s continued success.
“We learn a lot from our growers. While we develop varieties that we know perform well, we are always looking to offer that little bit more knowledge, that little bit more insight.
“We hope these resources help growers maximise their crop and look forward to adding to this library in the future,” Darren said.
