The greenhouse industry is filled with excellence, and we at Greenhouse Grower have developed a number of programs to recognize this achievement and spotlight the efforts of these individuals and/or companies. Each of these programs includes opportunities for interested suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to excellence in breeding and growing while enjoying considerable brand exposure.
Top 100 program
Our annual Greenhouse Grower Top 100 List is one of the most widely read features published by any greenhouse magazine every year as it identifies the largest growing operations in the United States by square footage. Published as part of our May issue annually, the list anchors a 16-page special report examining trends among the largest growers in the country.
Program sponsors benefit from exclusive ad positioning in the print report, on the Top 100 section of GreenhouseGrower.com and at an invitation-only Top 100 breakfast held during the OFA Short Course.
For more than 25 years, Greenhouse Grower has recognized one innovative, quality-oriented operation as its Grower of the Year. In 2009, the award was elevated by presenting it as part of Greenhouse Grower’s Evening of Excellence at OFA.
Then, in 2010, we expanded the program with the inaugural Head Grower of the Year Award program, which recognizes excellence among this most critical position in the industry, the head grower.
New plants lie at the foundation of the greenhouse industry, and the growers are continually clamoring for new, improved and innovative varieties. Greenhouse Grower’s Medal of Excellence program recognizes the efforts and excellence among breeders by spotlighting the most outstanding new variety introductions, which includes input from a panel of industry experts, our editorial staff and opening voting among the industry. The program culminates in a special report published as part of our July issue as well as one of the industry’s must-see events, Greenhouse Grower’s Evening of Excellence, held at OFA every year.
The Medal of Excellence Award categories include:
- Industry’s Choice for Breeding
–Editor’s Choice for Breeding
–Marketer of the Year
