Looking to Learn? By Tim Hodson

If you are looking for solutions for growing the healthiest and most profitable plants possible, then you need to be at GPN’s Plant Health Management Conference.

We introduced out first Plant Health Management Conference last October in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Due to the popularity of the first event, GPN will be producing two conferences this year.

We will return to Grand Rapids on Oct. 6 with a new program and, then later in the month (Oct. 27), we will meet in Springfield, Massachusetts, for the second Plant Health Management Conference.

The goal of these conferences is to provide growers and greenhouse personnel with the latest information on disease identification, integrated pest management, plant growth strategies and water quality and sanitation issues.

Go to the Head of the Class

We have recruited some of our industry’s most knowledgeable experts to be on our faculty including Jim Barrett, Raymond Cloyd, Ann Chase, Paul Pilon, Roger Styer, Ron Valentin and Paul Fisher.

Most of the educational sessions will be eligible for pesticide recertification credits. The cost to attend either event is only $99 — that fee drops to $75 for additional attendees from the same organization!

Both conferences will include tabletop exhibits featuring the latest products and services from industry vendors.

If you are looking to learn, Grand Rapids and Springfield are the places to be this October.
