Do You Have Everything Under Control? By Tim Hodson

Are you growing greenhouse produce crops? Are you considering getting into controlled environment agriculture (CEA)?

If you are, be sure to check out GPN’s latest supplement — Under Control: Tips for Controlled Environment Growing — that was included with your October issue of GPN.

This supplement is designed to provide you with insight into some of the crops and growing techniques that are involved in CEA.

In the article “Growing Greenhouse Produce,” you can learn about some of the critical production issues that you need to take into account if you are going to grow food crops in a greenhouse.

In “Increasing Yields of Baby Leaf Vegetables,” you’ll have an opportunity to read about the latest research from Cornell University on how light quantity impacts baby leaf vegetable production.

“Looking for a Seasonal Crop?” examines how greenhouse strawberries have the potential to become a profitable seasonal crop during those times of year when the quality and availability of field-grown crops is inconsistent.

As energy costs continue to rise, growers need to know what their options are to help reduce energy inefficiencies. “Minimizing Greenhouse Energy Loss” helps educate growers on how to combat these challenges and grow healthy crops and maximize their profits.

If you are looking to take control of your greenhouse produce, then you’ll want to check out this supplement.

If You Missed It

I also wanted to let you know that if you missed GPN’s recent CEA webinar on “The ABCs of N-P-K: Nutrient Management of Hydroponic Crops,” it is now available on demand.

This is your opportunity to learn about nutrient management from one of our industry’s leading CEA experts — Neil Mattson at Cornell University — and it is free.
