NY99037 - Development of Nursery into the 21st Century

This area of strategy and activity generated the most interest in both the qualitative and quantitative research, although generally speaking there was little interest in the subtleties of research versus development. The comment was made many times that participants in this industry learn by example and by personal involvement. It was generally conceded that the industry was well served with written information via the Nursery Papers,  the state Association- Newsletters, industry magazines and suppliers product literature. A common comment made was that much of that material was not read, but was retained in case the need arose.
