Coronavirus hit California's cut-flower industry at the worst time - Los Angeles Times
Coastal farms from San Diego County through Humboldt County likewise laid off most of their workers and went into dormancy at the very time when they usually earn the bulk of revenue — the string of holidays from Valentine’s Day through Mother’s Day. Chain groceries were among the first to cancel orders, said F.J. Trzuskowski, vice president of sales for Washington-based Continental Floral Greens, which grows the “supporting cast” green foliage for bouquets on three California farms.
“There was no forewarning of this. It was like, ‘Hey, stop all shipments starting now,’” Trzuskowski said. “Then with social distancing, all of a sudden the wholesaler can’t be open to the public. It was a very quick stop to the industry.”Mellano said he also was hit hard by cancellations of events such as conferences, particularly in Las Vegas. Weddings were put off, along with their roses, said Eufloria’s Nelson.“Maybe they didn’t happen right now, but they’re going to happen, right?” he said. “We just don’t know what size they’re going to be when they do happen. Budgets are going to be different.”
The California Cut Flower Commission has told its members that floriculture is protected under the agricultural exemption to closure orders. But with the collapse of the distribution pipeline, the clarification amounts to a technicality. Los Angeles’ historic flower market, like others around the nation, is a ghost town. “We’ve got wholesale companies closing down and retail stores, which in some cases have business, are losing their normal lines of distribution,” CEO Pruitt said. “We’re in the process of trying to put that back together.”Pruitt said it’s hard to predict how many farms will fail and which ones will have enough funds left to reboot once demand increases. Growers could switch crops or hedge their bets, as some of the financially strapped greenhouse operations did by leasing space for cannabis cultivation when that crop was added to the California agricultural portfolio in 2016.Cut flowers are a $1.3-billion industry nationwide, though most of that revenue comes from the sale of imported flowers, predominantly from Colombia, according to the UC Davis Agricultural Issues Center. Domestic growers account for about 27% of national sales, down from 37% roughly a decade ago. California-grown flowers account for three-quarters of the national domestic sales, according to the UC Davis researchers.
Trade deals that favored Andean nations in South America as part of the war on drugs are largely responsible for the decline of California’s flower industry. While Colombia and Ecuador dominate the market for bouquet mainstays such as carnations, chrysanthemums, gerbera and roses, California growers shifted to species that can’t be grown in the cool upland valleys of the Andes.Longtime California growers switched to Continental’s specialty — the “supporting cast” of greenery in traditional bouquets including ferns, eucalyptus and Israeli ruscus, as well as Christmas trees and holly. That stock can be sustained through the shutdown. Eufloria’s roses, likewise, can survive. But they all have to be nourished, pruned and protected from weather and insects.“As long as we irrigate and we do pest control, they’re still in good shape for sales when this opens up,” Mellano said. “Probably 35% of our crop mix are annual crops, and those have to be picked when they’re ready, within days, or else they’re lost.”Among the victims are the ranunculus ...

Growing pains: From cut flowers to cannabis, Lompoc grapples with its past while eyeing economic opportunity
Proposition 64's passage and highlights an identity crisis Central Coast communities face amid a booming green rush.
Mark Lovelace, a former Humboldt County supervisor and now a consultant for the firm HdL-which advises Santa Barbara County on marijuana regulation-told the Sun that the debate about cannabis in Lompoc and other municipalities often came down to a two-pronged ideology.
"It's a little of, ‘What kind of conservatism do you fall on,'" he said, "pro-business or anti-cannabis?"
Growing PainsFrom cut flowers to cannabis, Lompoc grapples with its past while eyeing economic opportunityPHOTO BY JAYSON MELLOM
Most Central Coast cities have already picked their side: Santa Maria, one of the largest, banned cannabis in all forms with the exception of medical delivery earlier this year.
"I feel strongly about eliminating marijuana in Santa Maria as much as we can," Councilmember Etta Waterfield said the night the pot ban passed.
Then there's Lompoc, roughly 28 miles south, with less than half the population of its northern neighbor and the polar opposite when it comes to marijuana regulation. With virtually zero restrictions on retail, processing, manufacturing, and cultivation, the city aims to be a hub for tourism bolstered by the nascent cannabis industry.
But despite the actions of its council and the promises of economic growth, marijuana business owners still have their opponents in Lompoc, ranging from its a href="https://lompocrecord.com/news/local/lompoc-residents-aim-to-put-brakes-on... Mar 16, 2017
Where to go for easy wildflower viewing
Similar conditions exist along the flumes in Paradise.Old Humboldt RoadIf you can overlook trash dumped along (old) Humboldt Road, you’ll find some great wildflowers, Woody Elliott said. Reached via Bruce Road, the bumpy old section of this road curves around and reconnects with Highway 32 a few miles east of California Park.Big Chico Creek Ecological ReserveRight now at the reserve, long-tubed irises are in bloom, said Aull, who gets to check the wildflowers every day he is at work. The reserve is open dawn to dusk daily and located about halfway to Forest Ranch, about 14 miles up Highway 32. Turn left at Fourteen Mile House Road. Aull said the best time to come is during a planned hike.Wildflowers can be viewed from the meadow just inside the gate. Note that parking is outside of the gate. March and April include many turkey hunting days, when hiking is not allowed for non-hunters. At least one day each weekend is available for casual hikes.

An Ingenious Experiment of Jungle Bats and Evolving Artificial Flowers
Over time, nectar should evolve to be exceptionally sweet. But it hasn’t. Why not?
Vladislav Nachev and York Winter from Humboldt University in Germany have just conclusively solved this mystery, using a set of extraordinary evolutionary experiments that took more than six years to pull off.
The team worked in the Costa Rican rainforest, with free-flying, long-tongued bats that had been fitted with radio tags. They presented these animals to a field of 23 artificial “flowers”—jury-rigged Kodak film canisters connected to a pump that dispensed sugar water. Each canister was equipped with light sensors that could detect the presence of a visiting bat, and a receiver that could identify the radio tags. “Sitting in front of our computers, we could watch which animals were going to which flowers,” says Winter.
It was a complicated set-up. The team had to set up their flowers in the middle of the jungle. They had to install air-conditioned huts for storing the computers and sugar water. They decorated the cans with wild plants, and even discovered a scent that attracted the bats. “I never thought that we could place a little plastic thing in the forest and hope that wild animals would visit,” says Winter. “But it worked!”
And here’s the wonderful bit: Nachev and Winter allowed the flowers to evolve.
Each had a virtual genome—a set of four genes that determined the concentration of its nectar. If a bat moved between two of them, a computer assumed that it had transferred virtual pollen across, and combined the flowers’ genes to create virtual see...
