The major annual industry forum of the Russian Nursery Stock Association took place at the Snegiri health resort on February 10-12, 2021. Goods and services of Association members – suppliers of plants, equipment, substrates, containers and fertilizers, landscape designers and landscaping specialists from all segments of the Russian green industry – were displayed on the forum sidelines. Russian Peat Company (RPC) presented its products – greenhouse peat soils and substrates – for the attention of colleagues.
The conference addressed a broad range of issues, such as regulations, industry standards, plant growing technologies, and modern methods of the promotion of nursery products. As a newcomer to the Association, RPC LLC opened the conference with the introductory speech by General Director Sergey Merzlyakov. The company joined the Association a short time ago, but its contribution to the legislative activity already won the appreciation of industry professionals, who also noted the high quality of RPC products displayed at the exhibition.
