March 25, 2014 — Results from growers and retailers show that while impatiens production and sales were down in 2013, overall total business sales reductions and increased costs were less than five per cent due to impatiens downy mildew for most.

Researchers at Michigan State University, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and Cornell University recently conducted a survey of greenhouse growers and retailers  that sought to determine the impacts of impatiens downy  mildew (IDM) on this industry.

The online survey was open to U.S. growers/retailers during the entire month of October 2013. The survey aimed to gather information on the impact of the disease, grower and retailer responses to the disease, as well as information on trends in consumer purchasing.
