On February 24 – March 1, 2008, Texas AgriLife Extension hosted a unique educational program for commercial nursery floral producers. The FLORI-Culture & Marketing Spanish Immersion Study Program combined language instruction with daily tours focusing on labor and marketing. The event, led by Dr. Don C. Wilkerson, was conducted in Cuernavaca, Mexico. This international program with an emphasis on marketing and labor is an excellent example of how TAMU-Horticulture is addressing key GREEN industry issues.
