Crop Scheduling of Bedding Plants Workshop

Contact: Kristin Getter, getterk@msu.edu, 517-355-5191 x1341

The need to have bedding plants in flower, on a predetermined date, has become a near necessity for large-scale commercial growers. Accomplishing this is a challenge due in part to changes in climate and the continual introduction of new cultivars. Join Dr. Runkle during this two-hour program to understand what factors influence flowering time, including temperature, lighting, and PGRs. Learn what you can control -- and what you cannot. What are your options if plugs arrive 2 weeks late? What can you do if plants are ready to ship but you can't ship them? Dr. Runkle will also show how different computer programs using MSU research results, such as FlowersOnTime, can be used to help schedule your crops on time. When: Wednesday, January 28, 2015; 1:00 –3:00 p.m. Where: Tollgate Conference Center, 28115 Meadowbrook Road, Novi, MI Cost: FREE!
