Graphical tracking of greenhouse crops

Height management can be a challenge for poinsettia growers. Graphical Tracking was developed as a simple crop monitoring and management tool to plot actual plant height or development of a crop and compare this value to target plant height or development over time.

In this video Roberto Lopez and Garrett Owen of Michigan State University will demonstrate how a greenhouse grower utilizes a graphical tracking program to make height management decisions based on how his crop is in relation to the desired height at that point in the growing schedule.
