The newly created Association of Colombian Nurseries and Ornamental Growers, Colviveros, will have within its fundamental objectives the renewal of plant varieties grown in Colombia and the preservation of the intellectual property rights, as indicated by its President, Jairo Cadavid.
According to Cadavid, Colombia has immense export potential of potted plants, which is proven by the sustainable success achieved by the fresh cut flower export industry for over 50 years. In order to achieve the expected export goals, farmers and horticultural producers must commit to the renewal of varieties, while preserving and protecting the legality and intellectual property rights.
The President of Colviveros pointed out that “this will allow us to build trustworthy relationships among suppliers, producers, and the end user, who ultimately will enjoy innovative and quality ornamental products from Colombia”.
