Only about 15 km from Nairobi Selecta Kenya is characterized by a savannah climate with high daily irradiation and cool temperatures at night. These are perfect conditions for the production of cuttings from our geraniums, perennials and carnations.
Due to the pronounced dry seasons, the farm invested heavily in a continuous and qualitative water treatment. This meets the high demands of the USDA-APHIS and serves as a source of drinking water for the employees on the farm. Due to the high production standards and the well trained employees on site parts of our breeding programs are carried out in Kenya, too.
Because of the high work intensity of the crops up to 2000 employees work there in the peak season. In addition to a primary health care, all employees get free hot meals. The farm also promotes its own sports groups. Some of the (by now very successful) distance runners also participate in international competitions.
