Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fishery of Surinam (2008-2009)
The main objective of the market study was to identify those tropical ornamentals that offer good export opportunities in the European markets and which can be produced under Surinam conditions. The study covered particularly the markets for tropical flowers, plants, foliage and young plant material (cuttings).
As part of the project, five product brochures have been written describing cultivation techniques under tropical conditions for selected products: palms, Anthurium foliage, Bromeliads, Dracaena cuttings, and ornamental grasses.
The project was carried out within the framework of the national Agricultural Sector Plan (ASP) and on behalf of the Surinam Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fishery.
