The moderator started the session with a very brief history of the development of the year "round flowering program and the people concerned with it. With this background, he expressed his optimistic views about the future of chrysanthemums, especially the future of greenhouse production. After a show of hands it was concluded that most participants were interested in year 'round flowering for both cut flower and pot plant production. Standards were discussed first.
