The SNA Research Conference, which began in 1956, provides a forum for horticultural researchers to communicate relevant and recent research findings to the industry. Its origin cannot be traced to any one individual, but the roots were planted by several SNA board members that recognized the need to consolidate duplicate research programs throughout the region. From an informal effort of compiling papers gathered from several horticultural research centers and assembled and printed, this two-day conference is held annually and has become world-renowned for quality research. Participants are the top horticultural research and educational leaders from across the county. Hundreds of topics in thirteen categories are shared in presentations that run approximately seven minutes each. A printed agenda and the conference format permits selection of research topics of special interest for those interested in attending. All industry members are invited to attend.

The 63rd Annual SNA Research Conference is scheduled for January 7 – 8, 2019, and will be held in conjunction with The SNA Conference at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland two days before the opening of the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS). More details will be available soon.
