Honoring the class of 2019

2019 Horticultural Industries Leadership Awards - Letter from Syngenta

June 26, 2019

The horticultural market is continually evolving, and with that, so do the challenges greenhouse and nursery growers face. Their commitment to maintaining clean, pest-free operations strengthens our commitment to delivering innovative and reliable solutions.

We are honored to partner with Greenhouse Management and Nursery Management for the third consecutive year to recognize the extraordinary individuals who have made significant achievements in the horticulture industry. Congratulations to the Class of 2019 Horticultural Industries Leadership Award winners: Art Van Wingerden, Metrolina Greenhouses; George Lucas, Lucas Greenhouses; Doug Cole, D.S. Cole Growers; Terri McEnaney, Bailey Nurseries; Dale Deppe, Spring Meadow Nursery; and Alan Jones, Manor View Farm.

These recipients demonstrate exceptional leadership and commitment, and have positively impacted customers, businesses and the industry as a whole.

Syngenta remains committed to meeting the needs of growers in this ever-changing industry. We are continually working to evolve and expand labels, build more agronomic programs and develop solutions to meet insect and disease challenges.

Most recently, we announced the expanded label for Endeavor® insecticide, which now includes drench applications and the ability to apply to vegetables grown for transplant. We also continue to introduce new agronomic programs to help control the most common insects and diseases that affect crops like poinsettias, spring bedding plants and mums. These programs are thoroughly researched and incorporate some of the most trusted products in our portfolio including Mainspring® GNL insecticide, and Mural® and Segovis® fungicides. Lastly, we want to help greenhouse and nursery operations succeed by maximizing profitability through our GreenTrust® 365 program, which allows businesses to earn year-long rebates on product purchases. While growers work to keep operations pest-free, we’re standing by with the tools and support to help.

Again, congratulations to the recipients of the 2019 Horticultural Industries Leadership Awards! Thank you for the vital role you play in growing strong, healthy and beautiful plants.
