Currently, the State of Mexico grows almost 90% ofall flowers sold in the country, and there are still areas with floricultural potential that could show a higher degree of development. In this study a production and marketing characterization of cut flowers, in Texcoco, State of Mexico, and surrounding areas was performed to generate information to support decision making to improve the activity.
