This year, Texas A&M AgriLife further expanded its educational, service, and outreach presence at the Texas Nursery and Landscaping Association's Nursery/Landscape Expo in San Antonio.
"This expo is where buyers and sellers from the green industry come together to meet face-to-face, discover new trends and grow their business," said Larry Stein, Ph.D., Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service horticulturist based at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in Uvalde. "It is also where many in the green industry come for informational and educational opportunities, and this is where Texas A&M AgriLife provides a service to that industry."
Stein said the Texas Nursery and Landscaping Association, TNLA, offers Texas A&M AgriLife the opportunity to provide educational materials and horticultural expertise at the expo.
"We've participated in many of these expos in different cities through the years and always try to enhance our educational and informational offerings," Stein said.
