Seely Conference Dates Announced
The Board of Cornell University’s Seeley Conference has announced that the next Seeley Summit will take place June 22-24, 2014 in Lisle, Ill.
The Board has chosen to tackle the issue of water scarcity for its 2014 focus. The Board believes water availability will be among the greatest challenges facing the floriculture industry in coming years
The interactive think-tank atmosphere of the Seeley Summit will allow for plenty of interaction with fellow industry leaders and water experts from outside our industry regarding these timely issues:
*What if you had to deal with the real cost, including distribution, of water?
*What if the direct cost of water to grow a pot plant, flat or hanging basket was equal to or exceeded the cost of the plastic or growing medium used?
*What would this do to your business?
*How do we make changes in our (your) business to accommodate the current and future ever-increasing costs of water?
*In drought conditions, how do we convince the legislators (and consumers) to consider and factor in the environmental, social, economic, health/wellnesss benefits of plants, trees and flowers into any water restriction guidelines they’re considering?
