  • In northern parts of Europe, Japan, and the United States
  • Why?
  • Cheap heating fuel
  • Inefficient cooling technology
  • Population Centers (at least in US)
production is moving southward due to
Production is moving southward due to:
  • Expensive heating fuel costs

factors influencing location of production
Factors InfluencingLocation of Production
  • Cost of Production
    • Heating, Cooling, Labor, Land, Taxes
  • Product Quality
    • Daylength, Light Intensity, Temperature
  • Cost & Availability of Transportation
case studies examples
Case Studies (examples)
  • Carnations
    • Up to 1950, costly transportation forced production near markets in the northeast even though poor quality flowers due to dark winter months
    • With cheaper transportation, production moved to Colorado for improved quality
slide27
Chrysanthemums
    • Due to cheaper transportation in the 1960’s, production moved south away from markets to utilize cheap outdoor production techniques
    • Reductions in plant and flower quality forced production back indoors
categories of greenhouse plants
Categories ofGreenhouse Plants
  • Fresh flowers - flowers which are cut from the plant prior to sale

(roses, mums, carnations, etc.)

  • Flowering plants - flower bearing plants which are sold in a pot

(chrysanthemum, etc.)

slide29
Green plants (foliage plants) - plants sold in a pot and valued more for their foliage than their flowers

(Ivy, Rubber Trees, Ferns, etc.)

  • Bedding plants - young plants sold for planting around the home

(Vegetables, Impatiens, Marigold, etc.)

  • Vegetables - grown to maturity in a greenhouse

(Tomatoes, Lettuce)

future of the greenhouse industry
Future of theGreenhouse Industry
  • Growing demand for greenhouse crops
    • Expect increased production of green plants, flowering plants, bedding plants
      • Increased awareness of interior & exterior landscapes
      • Potted plants are competitive on a more local basis due to difficulties and expense of long distance transportation
slide31
Although fresh flower demand will also increase, production may not increase dramatically in US due to cheaper production costs in other countries and affordable transportation to import
slide32
Changing market channels
    • The retail florist
      • 85% of all fresh flowers are sold to weddings & funerals
      • 200 to 400% markup
    • The mass market
      • Mostly unarranged, bundled flowers
      • 25 to 40% markup
