General Greenhouse IPM
The greenhouse business is one of the fastest growing industries in Alabama as well as in the United States. People everywhere want their home landscapes to be colorful year-round, businesses want to be attractive to customers, and almost everyone can appreciate the beauty flowers and plants bring to the environment. New greenhouses, garden centers, nurseries, and landscape companies are springing up everywhere.
The greenhouse hydroponic vegetable industry in Florida has changed significantly over the past 15 years (Tyson et al., 2004; Tyson et al., 2001) due to shifts in market demand, adverse weather, and research-based innovations in new crops, as well as improvements in production cost and efficiency (Resh, 2004, Shaw and Cantliffe, 2002; Shaw et al., 2000; Stapleton and Hochmuth, 2001; Sweat et al., 2003).
