Guest Lecture – Green Industry

On October 16th Tracy Wootten and Valann Budischak came into class to talk about the green industry. There are two different groups of crops in the industry, Floricultural and Nursery. Floricultural crops include potted flower plants, garden plants and foliage plants. Nursery crops include evergreen tress, flowering tress and Christmas trees. Floricultural crops are focused on small decorative plants where as nursery crops are focused on trees. Landscapers use the green industry to get tress and plants to decorate areas. Golf Courses use tress and grass supported by the green industry. Greenhouses are used in the green industry because of how they help control watering, temperature, and diseases.
