MIAMI, USA: Below is a statement from Ferntrust where the wind damage from the storm has left the fern industry in a real mess. Most of the growers were affected and the race is on now to replace the shade cloth that protects the fern from the direct sunlight.
David Register of Ferntrust says that the fern market was already tight and now it is sure to be tighter. With damage all around the challenge will be getting labor to repair the structures and continue to cut fern from the unaffected parts of the fernery.
These are good ole American farmers and they have seen damage before so we can expect that as you are reading this report they are diligently working to keep the fern supply coming.
