California Cut Flowers & Fewer Pesticides?
Share on Facebook

California growers are required by law to report all of their pesticide applications. With more than 20 years of data on the books now, an interesting snapshot of agriculture is emerging. Most notably, the use of pesticides among cut flower growers declined 50% from 2001 to 2010.

The folks at University of California Davis have investigated what, how and why. You’ll get a good overview of the factors at play by reading “Pesticide Use on the Decline in California Cut Flower Production: The Untold Story,” by Michael Parrella, Christine Casey, Andrew Melicharek, Machiko Murdock and Daniel Klittich.

It’s a quick read, and it might be a good article to remember the next time someone questions the cut flower industry.
