The art and science of watering greenhouse crops
by Roberto G. Lopez - email@example.com
You can teach employees how to stick cuttings, fill containers, transplant, and pinch and space crops. Unfortunately, watering is more of an art than a science as many variables can influence the decision of when and how much to water.

While others may become bored, text their friends and under- or over-irrigate. Imagine the results!
Inconsistent moisture content among containers creates a nightmare for everyone on your team. Non-uniform growth and development becomes the norm of over- or under -watered crops. To prevent crop shrinkage from over-watering, growers rely on fungicides and plant growth regulators to control root diseases and excessive stretch, respectively.
