Structure of azalea production in Belgium

, : Structure of azalea production in Belgium. Acta Horticulturae (55): 251-258

Five types of production structure can be seen: azaleas grown alone, with rhododendrons, with bulbs or tuber crops, with hothouse and glasshouse plants, and with other crops. 34.8% of growers produce only azaleas. The majority of businesses are managed by one person. Training standards are low. The average azaelea nursery amounts to 1.06 ha. 73.9% are in the open and 26.1% under glass.
