Effectiveness of Retail Promotions in the Green Industry by Age Group: A Case Study https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/116037 <p>In the horticulture industry, age has frequently been used to divide and quantify gardeners (National Gardening Association, 2013).&nbsp; For instance, consumers over the age of 55 account for the majority of U.S. household&nbsp;lawn and garden retail sales and the number of gardeners in this group is increasing (National Gardening Association, 2013).&nbsp; Interestingly, young consumers are also expressing interest in gardening.&nbsp; In 2012, Millennials (born after 1980) spent 78% more on gardening purchases than in the previous 2 years.&nbsp; Surprisingly, men are the driving force in this age group (with a 125% increase) who spent approximately $441 per household (in 2012) with most of the expenditures being on food producing/edible plants (i.e. fruit trees, berries, vegetables and herbs).&nbsp; The local and ‘grow your own food’ movements are likely the main drivers of increased interest in edible and food producing plants (National Gardening Association, 2013).&nbsp; To date, research addressing retail promotions in the green industry by age segments has not been adequately addressed.&nbsp;</p> <p>Once differences and similarities by age group are identified, promotions can be designed to attract those groups.&nbsp; Target marketing is a promotional strategy where consumers are segmented into homogenous groups with common needs that respond similarly to marketing stimuli (Belch &amp; Belch, 2009).&nbsp; Advantages of target marketing include streamlining promotional efforts, better market penetration, improved promotion efficiency, and stronger brand recognition.&nbsp;Many consumer characteristics can be used to create segments with one of the primary factors being demographic characteristics (Belch &amp; Belch, 2009).&nbsp; Specifically in the horticulture industry, young consumers have been of interest due to their increased spending power, low market penetration (in the horticulture industry), and potential to rejuvenate the industry (Rihn et al., 2011).&nbsp;For instance, in 2015 Millennial’s annual spending exceeded $600 billion and is projected to rise to $1.4 trillion in 2020 (Donnelly &amp; Scaff, 2019).&nbsp; Consequently, identifying how different age groups respond to in-store marketing efforts could aid in capturing additional market share and ultimately improve green industry performance and profitability.</p> <p>In this report, results from a study investigating in-store signage and plant tag information are shared.&nbsp; Specifically, similarities and differences between younger and older consumers and their visual attention to point-of-sale (POS) information is explored.&nbsp; Results provide a deeper understanding of how end consumers use POS information while determining their purchases in the retail center. Overall, this EDIS publication is intended to aid green industry growers, marketing intermediaries, and retailers as they design their in-store marketing materials.&nbsp;</p> Hayk Khachatryan Alicia Rihn ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-09 2020-03-09 2020 2 6 6 Small-to-Medium-Scale Sensory Evaluation of Horticultural Crops—Sensory Attributes https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/115625 <p>Given the economic impact associated with the value and acceptability of horticultural crops, sensory evaluation is commonly employed in research, product development and quality control, with very specific parameters outlined for its proper execution. Once the evaluation has been performed, the resulting data can be used to make sound decisions about crop quality and marketability, ultimately determining the overall value.&nbsp;This publication is the first in a series designed to assist producers in the small to medium-sized sensory evaluation of their horticultural crops, outlining the sensory attributes essential to sensory evaluation.</p> Sean Michael Campbell Charles A Sims ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-04-01 2020-04-01 2020 2 Conducting the Needs Assessment #11: Causal Analysis Techniques https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/116013 <p>This new 3-page publication in the &lt;i&gt;Conducting the Needs Assessment&lt;/i&gt; series provides Extension educators and other service providers with an introduction to two techniques that can easily be used when seeking information about relationships between causes and needs: fishboning and cause and consequence analysis.

In this publication, students will try on aspects of the third practice of exemplary leaders: challenge the process (Kouzes &amp; Posner, 2018). Two low-cost, quick activities are included for implementation with youth and adults working with youth. These activities are best suited for students ages 10–18. However, modifications are included for each of the activities to allow for different group sizes, ages, and abilities of the youth involved.</p> Megan Stein ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-13 2020-03-13 2020 2 Navigating the Unprecedented: Leading Remotely Unexpectedly https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/121240 <p style="margin: 12.0pt 0in 12.0pt 0in;">Leaders tend to have a set of assumptions or ideas about how to do their job. As the world moves quickly to social distancing and remote work, leaders rely on their assumptions to navigate this new landscape. Different frames of reference can act as a road map allowing leaders to take the first steps into the unknown. This new 4-page article utilizes these Bolman and Deal's four frames addressing different aspects of leadership to provide best practices for leading in a remote work environment.

The soil factor that best relates to sugarcane growth is soil organic matter content. Very stunted sugarcane is also associated with high nematode populations, which indicate high risk of crop damage. This new 4-page publication of the UF/IFAS Agronomy Department discusses grower options for evaluating and increasing soil organic matter. Written by J.

Tank mixes can consist of much more than just pesticides, such as fertilizers, micronutrients, and adjuvants. However, applicators must be aware of potential problems given that&nbsp;there are so many potential combinations when combining&nbsp;these products. Manufacturers cannot possibly test for all of these combinations, so both chemical and physical incompatibility are a concern with the practice. This new 4-page document, written by Frederick M. Fishel and published by the UF/IFAS Pesticide Information Office, describes some common-sense practices to help overcome costly tank-mixing errors.</p> Frederick M.

It is considered an adventive (not native and usually not established) species and is present in most states in the eastern US. Although these bees can be found on various plants, they typically prefer plants that have been introduced from their native area. Some have observed that when collecting pollen or nectar, <em>Megachile sculpturalis</em> will damage local flora, making it unusable to future bee visitors. However, evidence has shown that, although an adventive species, <em>Megachile sculpturalis </em>is thought to be a pollinator of a native and federally threatened plant, the <em>Apios Pricenana.<br></em><a href="https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1258">https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1258</a></p> <p>Also available on the Featured Creatures website:&nbsp;<a href="http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/MISC/BEES/Giant_resin.html">http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/MISC/BEES/Giant_resin.html</a></p> Kristen C.

This tick has been categorized as an invasive species in Australia, New Zealand, and several Pacific Islands. In the U.S., an Asian longhorned tick infestation was recorded in New Jersey during the fall of 2017. This tick is somewhat unique in that females are capable of parthenogenesis, meaning that females can produce offspring without having mated with males. The Asian longhorned tick feeds on a wide range of hosts including birds and mammals, including humans. This tick is considered a medical and veterinary vector due to its ability to transmit pathogens that cause disease in humans and other animals.<br><a href="https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1263">https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1263</a></p> Yuexun Tian Phillip E Kaufman ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-03 2020-03-03 2020 2 Psorophora columbiae (Dyar & Knab), Dark rice field mosquito https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/114437 <p>Organism fact sheet for the mosquito, <em>Psorophora columbiae</em> (Dyar &amp; Knab).

This species has been studied for the last 20+ years as a potential biological control agent of Brazilian peppertree, <em>Schinus terebinthifolia</em> Raddi (Sapindales: Anacardiaceae), in Florida (Cuda et al. 2008; Cuda et al. 2008; Manrique at al. 2014; Wheeler et al. 2016a, b). Host specificity experiments demonstrated that <em>Pseudophilothrips ichini</em> has a limited host range (Cuda et al. 2008; Cuda et al. 2009; Wheeler et al. 2017) and can cause a severe reduction of Brazilian peppertree biomass (Manrique at al. 2014).<br><a href="https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1270">https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1270</a></p> Patricia Prade Carey R Minteer James P Cuda ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-03 2020-03-03 2020 2 European Wool Carder Bee, Wool Carder Bee Anthidium manicatum (Insecta: Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/115566 <p>The European wool carder bee&nbsp;<em>Anthidium manicatum&nbsp;</em>(Linnaeus) is a solitary, cavity-nesting bee species in the family Megachilidae (tribe Anthidiini), a family whose members include the mason and leaf cutter bees. Wool carder bees are so named because the female bee scrapes and collects the soft downy hairs (trichomes) of fuzzy plants to use in building a nest for her young. Some consider male wool carder bees very charismatic and enjoy watching them chase after other bees that invade their territory, while others would call them bullies based on male bees’ aggressive tendencies toward other bees when defending floral resources.</p> <p>This species has been called the most widely distributed unmanaged bee in the world (Strange et al. 2011) because of its expansive native and non-native range.</p> <p>This document describes its synonymy, distribution, description, life cycle and biology, hosts, economic importance, and includes selected references.<br>Available on EDIS at <a href="https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1274">https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in1274</a></p> <p>Also available on the Featured Creatures website at&nbsp;<a href="http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/MISC/BEES/Anthidium_manicatum.html">http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/MISC/BEES/Anthidium_manicatum.html</a></p> Samantha Gallagher Andrea Lucky ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-03 2020-03-03 2020 2 Little Leaf Notcher (suggested common name) Artipus floridanus Horn (Insecta: Coleoptera: Curculionidae) https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/114481 <p><em>Artipus floridanus&nbsp;</em>Horn, also known as the little leaf notcher, is a secondary pest of citrus and several ornamental plants in Florida and the Caribbean.

Florida’s agricultural sector frequently experiences substantial adverse impacts during and after natural disasters. Depending on the size and scope of the disaster, agricultural business owners and employees could suffer reduced earnings, financial insecurity, and social stress, and consumers could experience temporary food insecurity. Timely provision of credible estimates of agricultural losses after a disaster is critical to an official disaster declaration and to timely provision of disaster relief and recovery, but collecting data on agricultural losses can present challenges. This 15-page fact sheet written by Christa Court, Alan Hodges, and Matt Lollar and published by the UF/IFAS Food and Resource Economics Department describes the online survey instrument, explains how to use it, and communicates how the data collected will be used in analyses of economic losses.<br> <a href="https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fe1075">https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/fe1075</a></p> Christa Dean Court Alan W Hodges Matthew Lollar ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-20 2020-03-20 2020 2 15 15 How to Start a Food Business: Basic Food Technology: Food Acidity https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/106976 <p>Food acidity is an important parameter in food product development. Most people know that food acidity influences flavor, but more importantly, food acidity can affect the ability of microorganisms to grow in food. Food acidity, or the amount of acid that is present in the food, is used to classify a food product, and that classification determines the regulatory requirements for the specific food product. This new 6-page publication of the UF/IFAS Food Science and Human Nutrition Department describes how to measure food acidity and how food is classified based on its acidity.

As atmospheric CO<sub>2</sub> rises, CO<sub>2</sub> is driven into the ocean. When CO<sub>2</sub> combines with seawater it makes carbonic acid. Carbonic acid then breaks down to form a hydrogen ion and a bicarbonate ion. Excess hydrogen ions building up over time result in decreased seawater pH. Furthermore, the excess hydrogen ions combine with carbonate ions in the water, resulting in fewer available carbonate ions for marine calcifiers. These carbonate ions are an essential element for marine calcifiers and their decreased availability is of increasing concern. The overall change in pH and available carbonate ions has been shown to have direct impacts on physiology, behavior, and calcification rates of marine organisms. Coastal Florida boasts an abundance and diversity of calcifying organisms that stand to be impacted by the altered carbonate chemistry resulting from increased atmospheric CO<sub>2</sub> levels. This publication will focus on the impacts of ocean acidification on Calcification. Specifically focusing on how calcification in corals, bivalves, echinoderms and planktonic organisms are being impacte.</p> Joseph Henry Joshua Patterson Lisa Krimsky ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-20 2020-03-20 2020 2 4 4 [FA219] Ocean Acidification: Fish Physiology and Behavior https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/115598 <p>Increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO<sub>2</sub>) has led to increased levels of dissolved CO<sub>2 </sub>in the Earth’s oceans. This has generally decreased the pH of – or “acidified” – ocean water. Decreased pH, along with other chemical changes ultimately caused by an increase in dissolved CO<sub>2</sub>, could have direct effects on the physiology and behavior of fishes. Physiology deals with the systems contained in a living organism that allow it to function and respond to its environment. Scientists have dedicated a lot of time and effort to studying the potential effects of OA on fish physiology and behavior. This publication will summarize the current state of our understanding on the topic, with special emphasis on Florida fishes. It will also address current knowledge gaps and limitations inherent in understanding the real-world effects of a complex global process using data largely collected on isolated fish in laboratory experiments.</p> Joshua Patterson Lisa Krimsky Joseph Henry ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/copyright.html 2020-03-20 2020-03-20 2020 2 5 5 [FA222] Fish Population Recruitment: What recruitment means and why it matters https://journals.flvc.org/edis/article/view/115758 <p>Recruitment is probably the most important process that regulations populations of fish, but it is complicated to understand. Recruitment refers to act of small, young fish transitioning to a older, larger life stage. What is so important is that during the recruitment period, natural mortality is density-dependent in a compensatory manner. This means that when there are fewer eggs and larval fish produced, there can be a similar number of fish “recruiting” to the sub-adult populations. So, recruitment processes are responsible for any fishery that is sustainable and are critically important to consider when making fisheries management decisions. This document explains what recruitment processes are, how they fit into fish life cycles, and why they are important for fisheries management.</p> Ed Camp Angela B Collins Robert N.M.

Ultimately, this document is intended for individuals working in urban environments and concerned about nutrient pollution and water quality issues, but do not have a technical background and want to improve their understanding of nitrogen cycling.
