Nominate a Young Grower Today!
YGA logo Congrats to the 2022 GrowerTalks/Ball Horticultural Company Young Grower Award winner, Quinten Henning from Henning’s Farm & Greenhouses Inc., DeMotte, Indiana!

Do you know of an excellent, hard-working professional under the age of 35? You should nominate them for the 2023 GrowerTalks/Ball Horticultural Company Young Grower Award! For the last 18 years, we’ve recognized young horticulturists for standing out from the crowd in this tough business, who—for whatever noble reasons—have chosen to have a career in this industry.

After three finalists are chosen, each is asked to write guest editorials for the June issue of GrowerTalks, gets a free trip to Cultivate’23 and, while they’re in Columbus, attend a special dinner with Anna Ball and other industry luminaries. The winner is announced at the Unplugged event during Cultivate’23, will be the subject of our September issue cover story and serve as one of our judges for next year’s award.



An extra special thanks goes to Ball Horticultural Company and AmericanHort for sponsoring this year’s award!

Sometimes we forget that newcomers may not understand the terminology, so I’ve put together some of the common terms used in the “beneficials” industry. They may not match Webster exactly, but the list covers terminology commonly used by the industry.
