SNA Conference Proceedings Highlight the Latest Horticulture Research

SNA LogoThe Southern Nursery Association’s (SNA) annual Research Conference is not just a forum for horticultural researchers to communicate relevant and recent research findings to the industry. It’s also a great place for growers to learn more about how they might apply this research to their own operations.

If you missed this year’s conference, which took place in Baltimore in January, you’re in luck. SNA has compiled the proceedings of its 63rd Annual Conference and has made them available online. The 209-page proceedings, provided free to the industry, is downloadable, searchable, and printable.


The 2019 proceedings include ten sections of the latest horticultural research on plant breeding and genetics; container-grown plant production; economics and marketing; growth regulators; landscape; pathology and nematology; plant propagation; water management; engineering; structures and innovation; and entomology. Titles were presented by 95 authors from 13 states and Mexico.

The annual publication SNA Research Conference Proceedings, from 1991 to 2019, is available in PDF for viewing, printing, or downloading (28 years and 3,136 titles comprised of 12,393 pages). When downloaded, the PDF file is searchable.

As a reminder, the 64th Annual SNA Research Conference is scheduled for Jan. 6–7, 2020, and will be held in conjunction with The SNA Conference at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, MD, two days before the opening of the Mid-Atlantic Nursery Trade Show (MANTS). More details will be available soon.
