Results of national nursery survey unveiled
Date:2/17/2009

native plant production, integrated pest management, brokerage, production contracting, and computerization. In-depth findings that can benefit the nursery and greenhouse industries were contained in the comprehensive report.

Analysis of the national survey data for the nursery and greenhouse industry in the United States showed that there are distinct regional differences in production practices and technology use. For instance, nurseries in the northern and interior regions reported using seasonal labor more than nurseries in other regions.

The Southeast region was found to practice integrated pest management more prevalently due to the warm and humid conditions. Most regions had a significant share of total production from Native American plants, approaching or exceeding 20% of total sales, except for the Pacific region, which had 13%. In computerization, the Mountain region had the highest level of adoption of computer technologies for production, marketing, and management.

Interestingly, data on water use and irrigation technology indicated no clear pattern with respect to regional differences in water scarcity. "Water conservation and quality issues are increasingly affecting the ability to produce and market nursery products, so it is important to document and track the efficiency of water applications in the industry, along with other 'green' concerns", reported the researchers.
