Though its Santa Paula location is closed to the public due to shelter-in-place regulations, the Ball Horticultural stop is still the place to see new plants and learn about the latest technical research. Ball’s new-product experts will host SimulCAST20, a virtual California Spring Trials experience, on Tuesday, March 31 (9:30-11:30 a.m. CDT), and Wednesday, April 1 (2:30-4:30 p.m. CDT). These two dates and time options are available for attendees’ convenience — and safety! — to participate in this digital conference right from their home or office.
SimulCAST20 will feature new-product presentations, video footage, and live, interactive Q&A opportunities with the experts from the following plant breeding companies:
- PanAmerican Seed
- Kieft Seed
- Ball FloraPlant
- Selecta One
- Darwin Perennials
- Ball Ingenuity
"With social distance the new normal, providing our customers a chance to experience new products conveniently was a high priority for our companies," said Susannah Ball, spring trials coordinator for Ball Horticultural Company. "Access to new product information via SimulCAST20 will help growers and distributors plan their upcoming seasons."
