The Greenhouse Research & Extension Program at UConn is organizing two workshops on greenhouse vegetables. The workshop on Nov. 11 will help new farmers learn how to establish and manage a hydroponic system. The second workshop (Dec. 9) is intended for experienced growers who would like to improve their production practices in hydroponic or soilless systems. Both workshops will take place at UConn-Storrs.

How to Start a Commercial Hydroponic Production Greenhouse
In this workshop attendees will learn how to establish and manage a hydroponic system. By the end of the workshop, attendees will know (1) basic greenhouse design, (2) basic components of hydroponic systems, (3) basic nutrient management of hydroponics greens and lettuce, and (4) how to develop a business management plan.

Greenhouse Vegetable Production in Hydroponics and Soilless Systems
This program for experienced growers should be attended by farmers who are already growing greenhouse vegetables and would like to improve their production techniques.
