The American Floral Endowment (AFE) has appointed Terril A. Nell, Ph.D., as its new research coordinator to oversee research funding and provide counsel to industry researchers. Nell is professor emeritus in floriculture at the University of Florida (UF) and developed the UF postharvest program in 1983, with the help of AFE funding. Nell was appointed following the retirement of Gus De Hertogh, Ph.D., AFE research coordinator for the past 15 years. Nell served as chair of the UF Environmental Horticulture Department from 1991-2012 and was a floriculture professor from 1977-2012. His research program concentrated on the production and postharvest handling of flowering potted plants and fresh cut flowers, the results of which have led to improved flower and plant longevity. Nell co-authored the Flower and Plant Care Manual produced by the Society of American Florists (SAF) and was the first academic president of SAF from 2003-2005. For the past 25 years, he has served as a domestic and international industry consultant for growers, wholesalers and retailers. For more information on Nell and AFE, visit www.endowment.org.
