Roses Breeding Varieties

About us

WAC BV is a specialized breeder of roses for the cut flower industry. Once started as a cooperation between producer Wagagai from Uganda and the Dutch breeder Agriom from De Kwakel, this venture has grown to being a supplier of genetics for production areas all over the world.

At five different testing locations our varieties are presented. In Kenya the main location is situated at Wildfire Naivasha and recently openend up a second one at TimaFlor in Timau. In Ethiopia at Sher there is a location presenting a specific assortment. The same counts for Colombia (Unique Collection farms / Savanna de Bogotá) and Ecuador (Flowerfest / Cayambe). The different climatological circumstances have their effect on specific characteristics, very interesting to observe!

The proof is in the eating of the pudding! Do contact our local representatives to have a look at our varieties and to organise a test on your own location.
