"Some Impacts of Recession on California’s Nursery and Floral Industry."

Carman, H.

from ARE Update, Vol. 16, No. 5, May/Jun, 2013


The recession following the burst of the housing bubble in 2007 had a disproportionate impact
on California’s nursery and floral industry. Combined sales of nursery and floral products dropped from
second to fourth among all California agricultural commodities, and from 12.2% to 7.8% of total California agricultural sales. A sharp reduction in the number of California retailers handling nursery and floral products will have long-lasting impacts on both producers and consumers.
