H-2A Workers in Demand in the Ornamental Horticulture Industry

thumbnail for publication: H-2A Workers in Demand in the Ornamental Horticulture Industry

FE1141/FE1141by Xuan Wei, Benjamin L. Campbell, Hayk Khachatryan, and Robin G. BrumfieldFebruary 21st, 2024The US agricultural industry depends on immigrant farm labor, particularly in the specialty crop sector where tasks like harvesting require a lot of labor. Most US farmworkers are from other countries, and almost half are not authorized to work in the United States.  The importance of immigrant labor in meeting the demand for workers in the nursery and floriculture production sector has been further highlighted with this industry's recent growth. This publication offers an overview of the increasing demand for H-2A workers in the ornamental horticulture industry, examines growers' challenges, and explores the underlying factors affecting workers’ participation in the H-2A program. It guides industry stakeholders to monitor changes in immigration policies and labor regulations, including the H-2A program and to adjust labor management practices accordingly. It includes strategies to address  labor challenges and remain competitive in the marketplace.Critical Issue: Agricultural and Food Systems

Inflation in Orange Juice Prices and Consumer Responses

thumbnail for publication: Inflation in Orange Juice Prices and Consumer Responses

FE1142/FE1142by Sungeun Yoon, Marisa Zansler, and Lisa HouseFebruary 20th, 2024This publication examines the recent inflation in orange juice prices and consumer responses using Nielsen scanner and orange juice tracker datasets. Orange juice prices experienced high inflation, peaking at 14.1% in January 2023, leading to decreased sales in both volume and dollars. Consumers are aware of the ongoing inflation in orange juice prices and reduced their orange juice purchases in quantity and frequency instead of discontinuing consumption altogether. Despite the significant barrier of high prices, the proportions of active orange juice consumers and those with a positive perception of orange juice remained steady and strong. Marketing efforts emphasizing the health benefits of orange juice continue to be crucial to sustaining consumer perception and demand.Critical Issue: Agricultural and Food Systems
