Ecke Ranch has initiated the second phase of renovations to its greenhouse facilities in Encinitas dedicated to breeding and research, which allows for specialized, climate-controlled production for gene pool, breeding, product trials and evaluation.

“This undertaking is the first substantial investment to the Encinitas facilities in 25 years,” said Paul Ecke, CEO and owner of Ecke Ranch. “We are expanding in both Guatemala and Encinitas at the same time. We feel that the time is right to move forward and make these commitments to our future. Much of the Encinitas facility was built for high-volume, stock plant production and propagation. These products are now produced offshore or with our partners. We really needed to have a facility that matches our company needs today, which is why we are making the modification in Encinitas.”

The first phase of this renovation project was completed mid-2010 and now houses breeder trials, product development and gene pool for non poinsettias. The Ecke Ranch plans to continue to transition older, inefficient production greenhouses to this new standard over time.
