News Bites

Hello All,

Welcome to our new website. Our primary goal is to provide information that everyone will find useful. You’ll find that every single variety we offer, whether vegetable or ornamental, has a tech sheet with specific cultural information. Everything is organized by crop category.

While Takii is known for its extensive onion program, please take some time to browse the site to explore our other offerings in the fruit and leafy crop categories. You’ll find a section on Rootstocks. Previously, that information could be found only in our catalogs, not online. Speaking of catalogs, you can find PDFs of most of the ones we offer.

Want to know where to buy our seed? In the upper right of the home page there are lists of vegetable seed dealers and the brokers who sell our flower seed, complete with contact information. The vegetable dealers are organized by region.

If you’re curious about the members of our vegetable and flower teams we’ve included bios on everyone. We also have a page of industry resources and a list of key industry events. This site may become your go-to-site for everything … even what to cook for dinner!

We’re gradually compiling a collection of recipes featuring Takii varieties. If you have a favorite recipe you’d like to share please send it in.

If you weren’t able to come to our 180th anniversary celebration last October, check out the video of the event on the Press Room page. You’ll also find videos with Steve  talking about our new seed processing facility. We even have a little eye candy — amazing videos of the opening of a new entrance at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam featuring 125,000 Takii Sunrich Sunflowers.

In the coming months we plan to add short videos taken at field trials

Please send us your comments — compliments, glitches, what’s missing: info@takii.com.

I’d like to thank Betsy Shea at Shea-Campbell Communications and Terry Low at Byte-Technology for their guidance and expertise in putting together this site.

Best regards,
