Floriculture and Nursery Research Initiative

 

The Initiative is funded through USDA/ARS, conducted by ARS and university scientists, and is strongly focused on addressing and solving stakeholders’ issues and needs.  USDA/ARS and university researchers supported by the Initiative met in Raleigh, North Carolina, March 2003 to report progress on their research, and to meet and “network” with other researchers and with stakeholders in the ornamental industry.  This meeting provided an opportunity to assess the progress of the Initiative’s research project portfolio.
