Sakata Seed America has announced the formation of a strategic alliance with major European substrate producer, Floragard Vertriebs GmbH, for exclusive distribution of substrates throughout North America.

This combination of horticulture and agriculture expertise of two world leaders allows Sakata Seed America to extend its market-leading genetics portfolio and provide growing solutions to its customers through exclusive distribution of premium Baltic peat moss and substrate offerings designed specifically for North American growers.

“We’re excited to be entering into a strategic alliance with Floragard. By working together and making the most of our collective agricultural and horticultural expertise, we will be able to serve our customers even better, further improving choice, quality and value,” said Dave Armstrong, president of Sakata Seed America.

“On behalf of Floragard Vertiebs-GmbH I would like to emphasize the importance of our entering into an alliance with such a reputable company as Sakata Seed America. Floragard and Sakata Seed Corporation Japan have been working together for more than 30 years and our alliance with Sakata Seed America is the next step on our common way,” said Ulrich von Glahn, managing director of Floragard Vertriebs-GmbH. “As a reliable supplier of substrates, we are looking forward to contributing to Sakata Seed America’s success in the United States and Canada.”
