Sakata Debuts CEA-Focused Website

Sakata Seed America recently launched a comprehensive website (SakataCEA.com) detailing specifics of Sakata’s controlled environment agriculture (CEA) product offerings.

In 2019, Sakata Seed America began to focus on an array of existing genetics that show exceptional promise in the CEA market. Spearheaded by Tracy Lee Zogby, who primarily worked in Sakata’s Home Garden group, Sakata quickly noticed the synergy between the emerging and exponentially growing CEA market and their existing business groups.

“We began to trial and explore existing Sakata genetics that showed promise for indoor and CEA environments. Our genetics are bred for exceptional horticultural traits, adaptability, and production benefits that were also applicable to various CEA environments,” Zogby, CEA Lead, said.

“I think what puts us at an advantage is our expert knowledge in all applicable crop segments. We aim to be a source of knowledge and support as the CEA market develops and key players continue to navigate and build out their product assortments in somewhat uncharted waters,” continues Zogby.

SakataCEA.com is a full-scale, online resource cataloging of all that Sakata’s CEA program has to offer. It features the entire CEA product portfolio, downloadable literature materials and tools for cultivation success, a digital sample ordering form and trialing information, a fully responsive seed distributor map, and a staff directory for easy access to product support in your area.

“Through strategic collaborations, exceptional genetics, and continued breeding efforts coupled with expansion and investment in our Research & Development team, we feel well-equipped to grow our CEA partnerships and supply quality seed in strong supply to the category, backed by excellent service and support,” concludes Zogby.
