Greenhouse Grower’s Online Editor Sara Tambascio recently talked to Texas A&M’s Charlie Hall about what role suppliers and distributors play in the credit situation in floriculture and how growers can weather these volatile times.
“We’ve had credit problems before,” Hall says. “We’ve had high oil prices before. We’ve had housing markets that have turned down on us, but we’ve rarely, if ever, had all these things happen at the same time. We’re seeing unprecedented times and that’s why you’ve seen Congress take unprecedented action in terms of the bailout bill.”
