Commercial Horticulture

Commercial Horticulture encompasses the production and management of ornamental plants, turfgrasses, fruits, and vegetables for profit. Extension programs in this area focus on the challenges facing professional growers. Extension can assist with marketing, integrated pest management, defining sustainable cultural practices, understanding environmental and human health risks, controlling invasive species, defining regulations, and increasing profitability.
