University of Florida Greenhouse Training Online courses win national award

The Greenhouse Training Online (GTO) program offered to growers by the University of Florida IFAS Extension is the winner of the 2018 Extension Division Education Materials Award from the American Society for Horticultural Science. Over 1300 growers have participated in GTO courses, with an 80% success rate.

Eight courses for greenhouse and nursery growers are offered this year last 4 weeks, and include streaming video lessons, readings and assignments (about 2 hours total commitment per week). Courses are in English and Spanish and can be accessed at any time of day. Click here to register.

The first two courses begin on June 4 2018: Greenhouse 101 and Costing & Profitability.

Greenhouse 101 teaches basic horticulture science, and is designed to help staff with no formal training make better crop management decisions.

Costing and Profitability helps grower managers develop the skills to accurately estimate production cost and profit for your greenhouse or nursery business.
