US (MI): Learn about production strategies and plant selection at Michigan Greenhouse Growers Expo

In previous articles, greenhouse growers and retailers were encouraged to attend the Michigan Greenhouse Growers Expo that takes place Dec. 9-11, 2014 at the Devos Place Conference Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan in order to learn about pest management and marketing and retail design strategies. But, there are additional reasons to attend the Greenhouse Expo. For instance, has your greenhouse business considered growing finished vegetables? Are you looking to try some new plant varieties and wondered how they performed in trials? Would you like to improve plant combinations in your hanging basket program? Are you interested in how LEDs might be used in your greenhouse lighting program? If so, then this year’s Greenhouse Expo has the answers for you.

On Wednesday morning, Dec. 10, Natalie Bumgarner from the University of Tennessee will give a talk on “Probing Greenhouse Vegetables - An Overview of Production Systems, Schedules and Approaches”. Her session is intended for those currently investigating or in the early stages of greenhouse vegetable production and she will cover key aspects of vegetable production in greenhouses including crop choices, timing, growing systems and considerations for those who may be interested in diversifying their current operation. In addition, speakers from the University of Florida and the University of Kentucky will talk on Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 9, about trends in greenhouse vegetable crops, greenhouse production systems, and fertilization of greenhouse vegetables.
