25th Seeley Conference to focus on Floriculture’s Environmental Footprint

25th Annual Seeley Conference Floriculture's Environmental Footprint: An Inconvenient Truth or Consumer Opportunity?

Floriculture’s Environmental Footprint: An Inconvenient Truth or Consumer Opportunity? is the theme for the 25th annual Seeley Conference, to be held June 26-29, 2010 in Ithaca, NY.

“Business owners should not think of the climate change debate as merely an environmental issue,” notes Dr. Charlie Hall, Ellison Chair in International Floriculture at Texas A&M University, who is coordinating this year’s program. “Instead, they should view it as a market transition. And as in any market transition, there will be winners and losers. ”

The annual Seeley Conference at Cornell University started in 1986 in honor of Dr. John G. Seeley after his retirement from Cornell University. Each year, the conference board of directors chooses a conference topic important to the future of floriculture.

For more information, visit the Seeley Conference website or contact Dr. Bill Miller or Dr. Neil Mattson, the Conference’s organizers in the Department of Horticulture.
