Water quality expert Dr. Sarah White, Professor and Nursery Extension
Specialist from Clemson University, describes how water quality affects pesticide efficacy and the bottom line in this new YouTube video (https://youtu.be/HH7Fo5rLSZM). Do you know how the pH of water in your spray tank affects the effectiveness of pesticides? How can you modify water quality for better control?
The video is hosted by Dr. Paul Fisher of University of Florida IFAS Extension for the Five Tips for Horticulture series on the UF/IFAS Greenhouse Training Online channel (tinyurl.com/ufgto). The series highlights technical topics from university and industry experts. The channel is sponsored by the Floriculture Research Alliance (floriculturealliance.org).
