Chase Horticultural Research, Inc.

Mount Aukum, California (September 18, 2007)--Chase Horticultural Research, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its new website, which features a greater array of products, services and information for researchers, growers, consultants, and landscapers.


“The offerings on this site really apply to our users’ practices,” said Mike Zemke, general manager of Chase Horticultural Research, Inc. “For example, they help users more quickly, efficiently diagnose and control plant diseases.”

Ann Chase, founder of Chase Horticultural Research, agrees. Chase holds a doctorate in plant pathology. She is also co-author of nine books and author of more than 700 articles. The most current research results are accessible on the site through Chase News, a monthly email newsletter containing disease alerts, trial results, and diagnostic information for the ornamentals industry.

“Chase News is the best way I could think of to keep our clients up to date on important disease information,” said Chase.

The site offers innovative products to help users accurately diagnose and efficiently treat plant diseases. These products, many developed by Chase, include books, flash cards, charts, rotation guides, and a library of downloadable images. A full-color diagnostic key will also be available in 2008.

Information about Chase Horticultural Research’s services, covering contract research, diagnostic work, seminars, and writing/editing, can also be found on the site.

Zemke said their organization’s core values of integrity, quality, and experience are reflected in the new website.

“Reputation is important,” Zemke said. “People know us for being non-biased. We will always be that way, and that’s what people appreciate about us. But we also deliver high quality work. It shows in the products we offer and in the high level of customer service we provide. And Ann’s many years of experience means a lot.”

Chase, a researcher for more than 30 years, will receive the 2007 California Association of Nurseries and Garden Centers (CANGC) Research Award, an honor given annually to an individual for research work of specific benefit to the California nursery industry.

“We’re just working as usual, according to our values, and our accolades come naturally,” says Zemke. “It goes to show you hard work does pay off.”

Founded in 1994, Chase Horticultural Research, Inc. is a leading organization that offers superior products, services, and information for the ornamentals industry. For more information, visit
