National Green Industry Survey Begins Data Collection

Posted By MNLA eNews, Tuesday, April 16, 2019

The Green Industry Research Consortium, with funding support from the Horticultural Research Institute (HRI), is launching the National Green Industry Survey this month.  This represents the seventh time that this survey has been conducted since 1989. The purpose of the survey is to document trends in production, marketing, and retailing practices in the U.S. Green Industry.

The Horticultural Research Institute’s mission is to direct, fund, promote, and communicate horticultural research. Supporting research that measures the industry’s economic contributions and documents industry trends is another example of how HRI helps advance the green industry and fulfill its core vision.

"This is the 30th year that our research team has conducted this national study, so it is special for us to commemorate this significant milestone. But more importantly, the study has been the steady source of information that is not collected by any other entity and has served the industry in so many capacities,” states Dr. Charlie Hall, research member of the Green Industry Research Consortium.  “The National Green Industry Survey also provides much of the needed data for our economic impact study which is important in providing our industry trade associations with the ammunition they need to affect state and national policymaking affecting the future of the green industry."

Craig Regelbrugge, AmericanHort Senior Vice President of Industry Advocacy & Research, concurs. “The results of this survey enable our AmericanHort advocacy team to educate Members of Congress, their staff, and other federal policymakers on our industry’s role, importance, and impact.  Decision makers and influencers are more likely to support our policy goals when they understand our industry’s true impact on jobs and the economy, as well as human health and well-being, strong communities, and the environment.” 

HRI encourages every business that receives the survey to participate. The survey is distributed via mail and email (when available) to randomly selected wholesale and retail firms throughout the U.S. Participation is voluntary, anonymous, and confidential.

Knotweed Survey Results

Posted By MNLA eNews, Tuesday, March 26, 2019

This past September, an online survey was created and distributed to both the public and land managers asking a variety of questions related to non-native invasive knotweeds in Minnesota. Eight out of ten respondents agreed that knotweeds should be regulated in Minnesota. After reviewing survey results, in addition to considering research and other sources of information, the NWAC recommended regulation of knotweeds as ‘Prohibited-Control’ on the Minnesota Noxious Weed List. This is a change from the current status from ‘Specially Regulated’. The Commissioner of Agriculture approved this recommendation and the change will become effective January 1, 2020.
