The commercial horticulture industry's impact upon Florida’s economy has recently been reported to exceed nine billion dollars. To ensure future economic success, industry professionals must remain aware of changing industry trends. Today’s commercial horticulture professional must also be aware of current environmental issues facing the industry as well. This balancing act is a constant challenge for commercial horticulture professionals.
The Commercial Horticulture extension program’s goal is to focus on the changing needs and challenges of horticulture professionals in the fields of nursery management, vegetable production, athletic turf grass management, landscape maintenance and pest control, so the future challenges of the commercial horticulture professional can be met. These needs and challenges are addressed through the combination of educational programming, seminars, newsletters, the latest University of Florida research, and personalized extension agent attention. My goal as a Commercial Horticulture Agent is to focus my attention on these commercial areas and professionals, keeping them informed on today’s industry innovations, news and trends.
