Our Trial Sites

Trialed and Approved

An extensive trialing program is a key part of Ball FloraPlant’s introduction process, where regionality is an important component. Not only for new plants, but we continue to fine-tune our varieties after they have been introduced.

Our checklist of launch standards includes performance characteristics required for a passing grade in our greenhouse and outdoor trials in various regions. We’ve also expanded the number of regional trials to better evaluate the performance of our products before launch. Based on these results, we feel confident that Ball FloraPlant provides you with the best-performing new varieties.
