FIELDSTARTER SEEDS FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE John Deere’s committed to creating solutions for the problems and challenges of today and tomorrow. After all, good citizenship is good business. While John Deere is most often associated with our agricultural and industrial machine equipment, we are always looking to develop new products and services that are outside those areas that support our efforts to find solutions for the challenges of the future. With those challenges in mind, John Deere has developed several new vegetable varieties that require lower water consumption and are capable of growing in broader range of climates. We believe that the development of new seed strains is essential for meeting the increased demand for food supplies and global warming of the future. This Field Starter pack contains our five most durable seed strains, capable of producing bountiful harvests in a wide range of temperatures with much lower water consumption than the varieties typically grown today commercially. We hope you’ll enjoy the fruits of our efforts porvided by this pack. FIVE UNIQUE VARIETIES GALCIERTOMATOES Sweetness of summer from spring to fall. A variety which is extremely cold tolerant bursting with flavor. DANVERSCARROTS Medium to large in size, with a classic sweet, flavor. Excellent for heavy & dense soil conditions.
