Createdd 2018-11-15 Hit 256
From November 7 to 9, the Gyeonggi-do Agricultural Research and Extension Services will participate in the 2018 International Floriculture Trade Fair (IFTF) in the Netherlands, globally showcasing cactus export products and rose breeds developed by Gyeonggi Province.
The Gyeonggi-do Agricultural Research and Extension Services will host a booth at the IFTF and promote market expansion for currently exported and outstanding breeds with potential for success, as well as the local industry itself.
Fourteen rose breeds will be displayed at the booth under ‘G-Rose Breeding,’ a rose breed brand developed by Gyeonggi Province. These breeds include Deep Purple, Deep Silver, Bounty Way and others that are already recognized for their high quality through international export.

The cacti exhibition booth operates in collaboration with a specialized export company that is part of an industry-university-institute collaboration initiative. The booth will serve to diversify the list of exported items and increase exports of value-added products by showcasing currently exported breeds as well as new breeds and by conducting export consultations.
Gyeonggi not only supplies locally produced rose breeds domestically but has also been active in global exports since 2009. It has subsequently exported 15 breeds and 5,270,000 rose seedlings, contributing to the industry by reducing the burden of royalties for domestic farms, receiving royalties from abroad, and more.
Of particular note, Gyeonggi Province specializes in cacti production, which accounts for 68% of the province’s plant cultivation. Exported to approximately 20 countries for more than 20 years, cacti continually prove to be stable added-value generators and key export plants for the province.
