Greenhouse Canada

Filled out this year’s online Grower Survey yet?

February 8, 2016  By Dave Harrison

Feb. 9, 2016, Simcoe, Ont. — How did 2015 play out for your greenhouse operation? Better than the past few years or off the pace of usual sales?

Which input cost rose the most last year, and did you increase your payroll?

Those are a few of the questions on this year’s Grower Survey, now online.


The survey represents a quick look back at 2015, and your experiences in terms of sales levels, input costs, pest and disease pressures, all in general terms, along with a little forecasting for 2016.

As an incentive for your participation, we will conduct a draw in February from among all the completed surveys, with the prize being an iPad Mini.

The survey takes about a half-hour to complete, tops. We’re not looking for detailed responses, but your overall impressions/recollections of the past year on a number of topics.

All responses will remain confidential and secure, and information will be reported in aggregate only.

The survey deadline is Friday, Feb 19. 

Last year’s survey results were included in our May 2015 edition; click here to review.

This year’s survey results will be published in our May 2016 edition.

We have contracted with QuestionPro, an independent research firm, to field your confidential survey responses. 

Please contact editor Dave Harrison at or 519-429-5185 with any questions.
