2016 Greenhouse Grower Top 100 Growers: The Complete List

Congratulations to all of Greenhouse Grower’s 2016 Top 100 growers! Our annual Top 100 List ranks the largest U.S. growers by total square feet of environmentally controlled greenhouse space. This year we have also listed shade and field acreage to give additional perspective on how large these operations are beyond the greenhouse. In total, the 2016 list represents 233,736,168 environmentally controlled square feet of U.S. production, up almost 5 million square feet from the previous year.
