Website Provides Info on Nutritional Monitoring of Floriculture Crops

Earlier this year, e-GRO, a collaborative team of university floriculture specialists and educators launched a nutritional monitoring website for greenhouse, floriculture and vegetable crops.

Nutritional disorders are among the many challenges greenhouse growers encounter during crop production.

To assist greenhouse growers in addressing nutritional disorders, the collaborative group of greenhouse and floriculture specialists and educators, e-GRO, has launched a Nutritional Monitoring of Floriculture Crops website, www.fertdirtandsquirt.com, led by W. Garrett Owen of Michigan State University Extension and Brian Whipker of North Carolina State University.

The website is sponsored by the American Floral Endowment. It is designed to assist growers in establishing an in-house monitoring program and serve as an information and education center.
