Specialists Form Sustainability Research Coalition

Faculty from Purdue University, the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire have joined together to tackle sustainable issues facing growers.

Purdue’s Jennifer Dennis and Roberto Lopez, Maine’s Stephanie Burnett and New Hampshire’s Brian Krug will combine their research and Extension efforts to help growers make informed decisions when it comes to sustainable production practices.

Issues the group will address are irrigation, crop production and energy efficiency, plant nutrition and the marketing of local, sustainable and organic floriculture crops.
