"Automation could treble value of China's flower industry"

Virtually overlooked in China’s mad dash to automate nearly everything is the country’s cut-flower industry.

According to China Horticultural Business Services, China’s floriculture industry is valued at more than $11 billion, with 90 percent of the fresh flowers produced consumed in China.

Automation could treble the value of China’s cut flower business plus expand its reach well beyond the country’s borders. Both of which the flower industry wants to accomplish in the not-too-distant future.

Although China’s cut flower industry began in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangdong in 1984, it is now principally centered in Yunnan province, which is nestled up against Myanmar and Laos, and where there is zero automation in planting, cultivation, harvesting, or in the delivery of fresh product to market. All of which need to change if the industry hopes to reach its goals.
