KVBC Awards have been given to plants inspected in the field; these have proven themselves to be useful and fit into today’s market. The ratings are based on statistical support. A KVBC Award can be given after a field inspection or a star inspection.
KVBC’s goal is to ‘share green knowledge’. KVBC wants to reach the entire chain doing that; from grower to retail and consumer. One way of sharing is sharing the inspection reports. Not just with the industry, but also with the consumer. That is why all inspection reports of plants that have been given a KVBC award are accessible through the website.
