Greenhouse Bioproducts Use Survey

The Ohio State University would like to invite you to participate in a survey on bio products used in the greenhouse production of ornamental and vegetable plants at http://go.osu.edu/ghbioproducts. This survey will provide valuable feedback to set research priorities and assist in the development of educational materials on bio products for the industry. The survey will involve approximately 10 minutes of your time. If you would like additional information, have specific comments or questions, please contact Beth Scheckelhoff, OSU Extension Educator for Greenhouse Systems at 419-592-0806 or at Scheckelhoff.11@osu.edu.


Bioproducts for Controlled Environment Plant Production Workshop

Date: January 13, 2016

Location: Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center, Columbus, Ohio 43210

Registration: Free for the first 75 registrants. Please register at http://go.osu.edu/bioreg.

Contact: Dr. Michelle Jones (Jones.1968@osu.edu)

Description: Biologically based products (bioproducts) can provide safer alternatives to traditional greenhouse chemicals. They provide users with fewer application restrictions and superior resistance management. The rapid growth of the bioproducts market is outpacing the dissemination of knowledge on how to integrate these different products into a sustainable and profitable greenhouse production system. This workshop will bring together industry and academic leaders to present research and develop a strategic vision for bioproduct use in the greenhouse industry. This 1-day program is open to the public to learn about current bioproduct use, application technologies, and economics.
