News from HRISource: HRI

Researchers wanting to tackle a significant issue impacting the green industry might have a resource to help fund their projects. The Horticultural Research Institute (HRI) and its Endowment Fund, the research division of the American Nursery & Landscape Association (ANLA) announced that it is now accepting research applications for its FY2009 competitive research grants program.

HRI-supported projects focus on significant problems, regulatory issues or emerging opportunities in the nursery and landscape industry; encourage environmentally responsible management practices; increase nursery crop producers’ business or financial expertise; or improve and expand the market for plant material.

According to an HRI press release, the institute seeks to support research that has “definable outcomes and represents a return on investment for the green industry.”

Home Nursery is an award-winning leader in producing field- and container-grown nursery stock and roses. Founded in 1921, it continues to be a family-owned and operated business. Home Nursery serves a 12-state territory and maintains two full-service distribution centers in Albers and O’Fallon, Miss.
