Billmann, Bettina (2008) Development of the Organic Ornamentals Sector Worldwide. Paper at: 16th IFOAM Organic World Congress, Modena, Italy, June 18-20, 2008.
The paper describes different and mainly innovative ways of production and marketing of organic flowers, perennials and potted herbs by way of examples from all over the world. Organic production of ornamentals ranges from the cultivation in small nurseries with direct marketing to large scale production with online-marketing or the selling of bunches in supermarkets. All factors considered, it is evident that the pioneer phase of ornamental cultivation consistently changes to professionalism.
