On The International Front

Delilah's working on a story about all that's happened at Syngenta over the last few years, rounding out its product span. There's a lot going on in floriculture all around the world. Here's a short roundup from papers around the world.

Small scale farmers in Central Kenya are making inroads into floriculture industry, encouraged by the arrival of flower varieties that do not require greenhouses.
Arabicum, crocosmia, mobydick (milkweed), tuberose and gladiolus are grown in open fields using rain water.

The University of Queensland Centre For Native Floriculture's Open Day
gives commercial native flower growers an inside view of the latest research being conducted by the CNF on native plants - including plant breeding, plant production and postproduction issues.
The event includes a tour of the new state-of-the-art greenhouse at the University of Queensland.
