Created by the industry, for the industry, the National Garden Bureau’s new 2021-2022 Crop Trends Report fills the information gap that many in the plant industry have been requesting for years – a historical view of crop performance.

As part of its mission to “Inspire, Connect and Grow”, the National Garden Bureau is pleased to offer its first 2021-2022 Crop Trends Report which will provide plant and seed brokers/distributors, growers and retailers an insider’s view of crop trends needed to make business decisions based on insights from the plant breeding community.

Unlike market research companies that glean information from public sources, this is a historic time when the crop trends presented in this report are based on data provided by the same companies that breed, produce and market these crops. You can’t get closer to a reliable source on crop trends than the NGB Crop Trend Report.

The data used to compile this report comes from three breeder-producer market share surveys that the National Garden Bureau has conducted for more than 30 years. From this information, NGB took the opportunity to create a high-level summary of crop trends for the benefit of all distribution partners.

Comments on each crop were provided by survey participants who are subject matter experts. The commentary highlights the trend line with information about the direction of the selection and market changes.

In this inaugural year, the 2021-2022 Crop Trends Report includes details on 20 annual crops, 14 perennial crops, 10 shrubs, 12 edible plants and two seasonal crops.
