Drones. Automation. Artificial intelligence. They’re some of the new, cutting-edge ways to monitor greenhouse plants. They’re also some of the subjects to be covered by an upcoming workshop for greenhouse growers.
With a theme of “Improving Production Via Listening to Plants,” The Ohio State University’s 2021 Greenhouse Management Workshop takes place online from Jan. 27–29.
“Growing ornamental and food crops in a controlled environment requires careful monitoring of plants’ physical and physiological aspects,” said workshop co-organizer Chieri Kubota, professor of controlled environment agriculture with Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).
Registration for the workshop is $60, which includes access to all the sessions and to recordings of the sessions until March 15.
Participants can register online at the website, or can mail in the registration form from the flyer and include a check for payment. Participants will receive Zoom links for the workshop on Jan. 25.
