Syngenta Seeds introduces new seedless watermelon, pollinizer

DeuceBut with the Duece system, offered through Syngenta’s Full Count program, growers only need make one transplant pass.

That’s because the SP-5 is planted in the same tray cell as the seedless variety. Not every cell has a plant pair, however, he says.

Each tray contains a specific ratio and distribution pattern.

This is possible because SP-5 is non-competitive and grows at about the same rate as Fascination, Liere says.

When growers receive the trays, they transplant them as if they it were just the seedless variety.

“It eliminates those extra people who are just planting the pollinizers,” Liere says.

A limited amount of Fascination seed was available for the 2010 season, but Liere says this year more than 10 percent of the watermelons planted in the East will be to that seedless variety.
