Seminars focusing on plant propagation

NC State is organizing two webinars on plant propagation:

#1. Thinking Inside the Box: What the Shipping Environment Does to Your Cuttings
  • 1:00 to 1:30 pm Eastern Time 
  • Nathan Jahnke - PhD Graduate Student, North Carolina State University
Unrooted vegetative cuttings are a popular choice for propagating floriculture crops, but some cuttings travel thousands of miles before they get to a grower. Ethylene, dehydration, and Botrytis are a few common postharvest factors that can reduce cutting quality during shipping and storage. In this webinar learn how these factors may be affecting your URC and liner supply chains.
 
#2 Successfully Rooting Vegetative Cuttings
  • 1:30 to 2:30 pm Eastern Time 
  • W. Garrett Owen - Michigan State University   
Rooting your own vegetative cuttings has been increasing in popularity. However, there are many growers considering rooting cuttings for the first time. Dr. Owen will present important aspects to consider when propagating your own cuttings to get rooting success near 100%.

Register for both seminars here.
