We are thrilled to announce that our Darwin Colombia unrooted cutting production farm has achieved MPS-A for sustainable practices. Through the hard work and dedication of our team, the facility was recognized for its sustainable efforts a presentation ceremony during Cultivate'18 in Columbus, Ohio.

Achieving MPS-A means Darwin Colombia explores earth-friendly integrated pest management, such as biological controls, as well as efficient water usage. Darwin Colombia currently uses 90% of its water from rain collection.
