Plant Source International
Office: Rogers, MN
Production: Cuernavaca, Mexico Region
History: In 1997, with the support of several key growers and a production farm in Mexico, Troy Lucht created Plant Source International to produce spring vegetative spring annuals that were both non-patented items and patented items from around the world. Many of the new patented items were coming from smaller breeding companies that were looking for an opportunity into the North American market. A few years after beginning production, it became apparent for the need to have self-owned and managed production facilities in Mexico. Mauricio Paniagua, the former general manager of the prior production site, partnered with Troy Lucht to create Plant Source International Mexico. Currently, PSI Mexico owns and operates all its own land and buildings. Over the years, we have added key personnel to allow the company to continue to grow and be responsive to our customers. We pride ourselves on quick order response, proactive order management in weather and freight delays, and accurate, reliable order acknowledgments and fulfillments.
Breeder connections: PSI's current production is made up of about half unpatented varieties and half patented. The breeder connections have expanded to include Danziger, Florensis, GGG, Marcum, PAC-Elsner, Terra Nova, and Westflowers.
