Last chance to register for FCO’s Research Conference!

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-2-48-09-pm Flowers Canada Ontario is hosting a Research Conference on February 1st.

The conference will focus on best management practices (or BMPs) in the greenhouse, including those for water management, lighting, and pest control.

Keep reading for details on speakers and registration.

We often think of BMPs as only having to do with water management.  However, Flowers Canada Ontario has been supporting projects that create and improve BMP’s for all aspects of a healthy and productive greenhouse.  This conference will provide an overview of current BMPs in the industry.  The full program for the afternoon can be found here.

The conference will feature Will Healy from Ball Horticultural as the keynote speaker.  Mr. Healy will address managing shrink to increase profitability.  Other topics include the use of LEDs in specific crops, novel fertilization strategies, and new techniques for water quality testing.

The conference will be held at Casablanca Winery Inn, 4 Windward Drive, Grimsby, ON February 1st, 2017, starting promptly at 11:30.  Your registration includes lunch.

Registration is $75.00.  To Register, please contact Rachelle at 519.836.5495 ext. 4230 or email
