   Floriculture Search Engine Puts Decades Of Info At Your Fingertips
by American Floral Endowment

Industry members now have online access to a comprehensive floriculture library containing information that may have been previously unavailable. AFE has partnered with North Carolina State University (NCSU) to create the Floriculture InfoSearch Engine, a powerful search engine for convenient and comprehensive access to floriculture literature, videos and presentations.

The website also contains a floriculture archive with materials from AFE, NCSU, scientific journals and trade publications, all of which are accessible and searchable through one website.

“We want to thank a couple of floriculture pack rats, George Staby and Harold Wilkins, for opening their files to us and several industry groups and magazines for allowing us to scan and enter their articles,” project leader and NCSU Horticultural Science Department Head John Dole, Ph.D., said. “This project is a wonderful example of what can be done when several groups work together to benefit the floriculture industry.”
