Greenhouse Grower readers spoke loud and clear late this summer in an online poll asking which industry group is the most powerful today.
Readers had seven choices in the poll, including breeders, suppliers, distributors, growers, retailers, associations or another group. Forty-three percent of those polled say retailers are the most powerful. Another 15 percent chose “growers.” Twelve percent indicated “another group,” possibly being box store buyers, is the most powerful.
Breeders (10 percent) and suppliers (10 percent) also received several votes while distributors (5 percent) and associations (5 percent) received the fewest.
