Oregon's greenhouse and nursery industry is serious about taking care of problems through research. That's why part of the license fees paid by growers to the Oregon Department of Agriculture fund a research grant program that helps in a variety of ways, according to ODA's Gary McAninch: “Typically, it's problems like pest and disease issues or plant nutrient issues or how to make the growing of nursery stock more efficient." This year's projects range from developing new plant varieties that meet consumer demand to testing a small unmanned aircraft equipped with a digital camera that collects inventory data on nursery property, reducing the need for a person to painstakingly collect data from the ground.
