As of January 1, 2021, the supply specifications of Helianthus will be adjusted with the aim of providing correct and complete supply information. The following adjustments will be made:
1. Characteristic S54 (plant form) is made mandatory.
2. Characteristic S05 (maturity stage) is also mandatory for garden plants.
Regulatory characteristics Helianthus as of January 1, 2021:
S01 = Pot size
S02 = Minimum plant height
S03 = Minimum number of cuttings/plants per pot
S05 = Maturity stage
S54 = Plant form
Value 008 = branched
Value 009 = highly branched
Value 010 = plant with only one inflorescence/flower
Because the plant shape is an important aspect for the marketing of Helianthus, this characteristic is added to the regulations. And because ripeness in the Helianthus garden is currently a recommended characteristic, it will be made mandatory for creating uniformity within the same product groups.
