Industry Research Services


Since 1962, the Horticultural Research Institute has directed more than $5.4 million of industry funds through its competitive grants program. Research projects have covered the full range of production, environmental and business issues important to the green industry. Funding for the competitive grants program comes from HRI supporters and their charitable donations made to the HRI General fund or numerous named funds of the HRI endowment. The annual investment returns from the HRI endowment provide research grants each year.

HRI strives to fund research that specifically deals with green industry related issues. HRI-supported projects focus on significant problems, regulatory issues or emerging opportunities in the nursery and landscape industry, encourage environmentally responsible management practices, increase nursery crop producers' business or financial expertise, and improve and expand the general market for plant material. HRI seeks to support research that has definable outcomes and represents a return on investment for the green industry.
