Webinar on New Plant Intros to Take Place in July
A one-hour webinar on “Exciting New Plants Entering the Pipeline!” will take place July 19, 2018 at 11a.m. CDT
During the webinar, Texas A&M’s Brent Pemberton will discuss some of the new plants that will be entering the green industry pipeline based on his observations at the 2018 California Spring Trials, his own plant trials in Overton, Texas, and with his participation in the Texas Superstar program.
Pemberton’s area of research is in nursery and floriculture crop production and physiology. His research has an emphasis on field production of rose plants including work on propagation and irrigation practices, production systems, weed and disease control, and postharvest care and shipping.
He is currently working with a group of scientists on improving disease resistance in roses. In addition, bedding plant pack and garden trials are performed each spring and fall featuring new varieties available for production in the bedding plant industry. Various problems with bedding plant production and utilization are also being addressed.
