Organic Seedling Production for Small and Medium Scale Growers
Do you already have experience growing seedlings but desire to expand your skills and improve outcomes? Producing high quality seedlings is a prerequisite to successful crop production. In this interactive, virtual, three day course, participants will deepen their knowledge of seed and seedling biology, the management of environmental conditions to optimize seedling development, and how to effectively regulate pests and diseases in the greenhouse.
Through presentations, short videos, interactive discussions and applied exercises, seedling growers will also build their capacity to analyze soil mixes, crop health, seedling maturation, and the systems you currently work with, all with the goal of being able to make improvements that create efficiencies and increase the quality of your crops.
