Operation of the Year: Corso’s Horticulture
Innovation at Corso’s Horticulture starts with automation. The operation has mechanized its sticking and plant potting processes and uses a warehousing super market pulling system to improve lean production. Develoment of new perennial cultivars at Corso’s is also an innovative process. Plants are trialed and analyzed for multiple years through partnerships with customers and breeders.
“I want to thank the suppliers and vendors who have helped us succeed, as well as our amazing team from office workers to growers to our H-2A employees,” said Chad Corso of Corso’s Horticulture. “Several generations have helped build this business, and we are proud to continue that.”
