Worlds Horticultural Industry in Peril due to Covid 19 lockdown
Journal of Horticulture is pleased to announce Special issue on “Worlds Horticultural Industry in Peril due to Covid 19 lockdown”.
COVID-19 is a respiratory illness which has infected more than 200 countries and has killed more than two hundred thousand people globally. As countries around the world increase their actions to contain the spread of Coronavirus Covid-19, the implications are beginning to be felt across the horticultural and agricultural supply chains. Horticultural industries are severly affected. Ornamental growers across Europe are suffering from reduced demand. In Britain the closure of more than 3,000 garden centres and nurseries mean makers of what's called "ornamental horticulture" have no outlet for their plants. Similarly Europe’s fresh food supply is being threatened by coronavirus. Fresh fruit and vegetables will become increasingly scarce in Europe and United States, suppliers warn, as the coronavirus pandemic hampers the global movement of produce and of the people needed to gather crops. Even, African countries like Kenya, a major supplier of green beans and peas to Europe, half of the workers in the sector have been sent home on mandatory leave because of the industry’s inability to ship orders, even as demand from European retailers surge.
So, we want to assess the severity of lockdown on Horticultural industry. We are delighted to provide the scientific community a platform to showcase their studies.
