If you’re reading this, you must have a strong connection with the floral industry, but our industry is sadly underfunded. By doing your part to give back, you help this problem and leave a legacy of support for the green industry. Do not wait for someone else to provide all the support. It is up to each of us to strengthen our industry.
Without industry members making thoughtful donations, researchers have a difficult time attaining the necessary funds to conduct the research that improves all of our businesses. Giving back to the industry enables organizations to help fund research focused on pest and disease control, cut flowers, effects of light, growth regulation and post harvest techniques. Research leads to longer-lasting flowers and more profits for everyone.
