In order to methodologically and comprehensively address agricultural and plant pathology issues, a Scientific Advisory Committee was established by ANVE in February 2015; the committee’s members will be major figures from the worlds of academia and research. In this way, it will be possible to deal with the professional aspects of ornamental plant production by sharing opinions and results with the sector.
