Dr. Yin-Tung Wang and moth orchid
Dr. Yin-Tung Wang, a horticulturist at the Texas A&M University System Agricultural Research and Extension Center at Weslaco, is working on the project with several entities in Taiwan.These include the Republic of China, colleagues at two Taiwanese universities, several orchid growers and an information management company.
By setting up Web cams in Taiwan's orchid greenhouses, authorized wholesalers anywhere will be able to shop and buy online.In addition, Wang and other scientists will be able to log on to detect and resolve horticultural problems without leaving their offices.
"To my knowledge, this type of e-commerce project has not been done before," said Wang, a native of Taiwan and a renowned expert in the production of moth orchids.The orchids are also known by their scientific name of Phalaenopsis.
While details are still being worked out, Wang expects the project to cost $1.8 million, most of which will be funded by participating orchid growers.A smaller contribution will come from the Republic of China.
"Taiwan's equivalent of our USDA," he said, "has identified four high-value, flagship agricultural products that they want to support and promote on the global market.
"Moth orchids are a priority in Taiwan, so we are confident funding for this project will come through," Wang said."The government of Taiwan, known as the Republic of China, wants the moth orchid to be closely aligned with the image of Taiwan, so that it becomes a symbol of Taiwan."
To gain the confidence of wholesale buyers in this new method of buying, Wang and his colleagues have suggested developing criteria for uniform and standardized plants.These criteria involve improving and stabilizing their greenhouse growing environments so plants will grow at a predictable rate, he said..
"My contribution here will be to improve the growth of the plants, while Dr. Chiachung Chen and other faculty members at the National Chung-Hsung University will do their part to control the environment of the greenhouses.Dr. Phoebe Hao at Mingdao University will lend her expertise in business management and help develop the e-commerce infrastructure.And a private information management company will also be involved," he said.
Participating orchid growers would pool their resources and inventory into one domain so buyers could make their purchases without having to travel.
Wang said his research in the project will be shared with orchid growers everywhere, including two in South Texas.

Dr. Gene Lester and Dr. Yin-Tung Wang have been named Fellows by the American Society for Horticultural Science.
Wang is a horticulturist at the Texas A&M University System Agricultural Research and Extension Center at Weslaco.
Dr. Yin-Tung Wang, a native of Taiwan, has been a horticulturist at the Texas A&M research facilities at Weslaco since 1984.While he has worked on a variety of ornamental species, since 1990 he has focused on potted orchids and the development of modern production systems, Wang said.
Dr. Dan Lineberger, a professor of horticulture at Texas A&M University who nominated Wang to receive the society's Fellow designation, said Wang's work has helped make potted orchids one of the hottest-selling ornamental commodities in the world.
"As a result of Dr. Wang's exemplary work, he's taken orchids from the realm of specialty crop to commodity crop," Lineberger said.
Dr. Wang is regarded worldwide as the ‘go to' expert for sound research on orchid production."
Wang has written more than 70 refereed publications and many articles for the industry and popular press, received over $1 million in grants and gifts for his research, and served as mentor and professor for many students studying for advanced degrees in horticulture, Lineberger said.
"I am honored and humbled to be named as a Fellow by the Society and thank all of those inside and outside the industry who have helped me in my endeavors over the years," Wang said.
In addition to his work with the horticulture society, Wang has been active in the American Orchid Society and was recently elected executive secretary of the International Commercial Orchid Growers Organization.
