Science and Education

  • Science and Education

    Through the Science and Education group we work towards sharing the latest scientific information, celebrating the most progressive growers and sharing pioneering new approaches.

    Our aim is to assist growers in improving productivity and sustainability, and to help scientists in the delivery of research with maximum value for growers.

    We work closely with the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) for the benefit of horticultural science, education and the industry. The two networks stand together during presentations, symposia, congresses and exhibitions.

    The aim of the group is to:

    • Assist the industry in the adoption of new practices resulting from research thereby improving industry productivity.
    • Raise awareness of ornamentals R&D being carried out.
    • Improve the link between growers and scientists to encourage more industry-relevant science.
    • Ensure scientists understand industry priorities.
