Greenhouse Grower Medal of Excellence Awards: Technology of the Year Winner, Editor’s Choice Award Finalists

Greenhouse Grower’s Medal of Excellence Awards, which in years past have been announced during an evening reception at Cultivate, are a great way to recognize excellence in plant breeding, innovation in greenhouse technology, and more.

While it’s disappointing we can’t be with you in person at Cultivate to honor this year’s award winners, we’re grateful that technology allows us to continue the Medal of Excellence tradition, even if it’s in a slightly different format.


Throughout the month of July and into the first week in August, be sure to watch for a video in our Benchrunner enewsletter announcing one Medal of Excellence award winner each week. Also this year, we will honor the winners of our Grower of the Year and Operation of the Year awards at Greenhouse Grower’s new GROW Executive Summit event in December. You can learn more about this new event at

Last week we announced three finalists for the Medal of Excellence Award for Technology, which recognizes new innovation in structures, automation, or equipment that makes crop production more efficient while improving plant quality. Check out the video below to learn which innovative product took home the top prize! Following that, you can learn which new varieties made the final cut as finalists for the Editor’s Choice Award. The Editor’s Choice winner will be announced in the Benchrunner enewsletter on July 15.

We also want to once again call your attention to the always popular Reader’s Choice Award. Voting is now open; click here for more!

Special thanks to WestRock for sponsoring these awards and making this program possible.
