German university compiles international plant yearbook

The 61st International Statistics: Flowers & Plants, compiled by Leibniz University of Hannover, has been issued by the International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) in association with Union Fleurs.

The yearbook provides data on global production and trade from 48 countries. The 164-page CD publication contains tables, diagrams and maps, grouped according to country, product and market.

AIPH secretary-general Tim Briercliffe said: "Anyone with an interest or involvement in the international market for flowers and plants will find this resource fascinating. Leibniz University of Hannover put in a huge amount of work to ensure it contains the best data there is from around the world.

"Whether you want to know that Colombia produced 2,465ha of roses in 2012 and China produced 3,380ha of cut carnations in the same year, or that Denmark exported EUR295m of pot plants or that the USA imports EUR129.4m of cut flowers from Ecuador, you can find it all out, and much more."
