Colombian Minister of Agriculture meets with nursery growers
At the end of his visit the Minister of Agriculture indicated that ornamental plants are a new sector that is gaining a very important space in the country's agricultural economy and will receive all the support of both his Ministry and the phytosanitary authority to strengthen not only the development of the local market but also boost the export of live plants and foliage, which in 2016 exceeded USD16 million.
