Seminis is now using the Monsanto facilities located in Chatham, Ontario, to distribute seed to Canadian greenhouse growers. “With this new distribution centre in Chatham, we can now ship seed to our Canadian customers overnight, or make it available for pickup at the centre on the same day the order is placed,” said Seminis protected culture sales manager Joep van de Burgt.

Utilizing sales forecasts and history, Seminis will transfer seed from its processing plants in the Netherlands and United States in advance of anticipated sales. Along with the necessary customs paperwork and certificates, the seed will be available to growers at a moment’s notice. The seed will come packaged in foil to the Chatham facility, where it will be stored in a refrigerated system. Seminis is the vegetable seed division of Monsanto. It operates in 150 countries and territories. • www.seminis.com
