Industrial management techniques in horticulture

Acta Horticulturae (25): 202-211

Industrial management techniques in horticulture

There is a trend towards the evolution of much larger enterprises in the horticultural industries in Britain and Europe. The paper examines some aspects of management in horticulture which are likely to assume greater importance if very large enterprises and co-operatives become more numerous.Two techniques, management by objectives (MBO) and value analysis (VA), which seem to be applicable to them are discussed. Each of these techniques is already widely used in the manufacturing industries.
