Growers Supply, a distributor of greenhouses, high tunnels, and hydroponic systems, is hosting two Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) Hands-On Workshops this spring. The first one takes place April 27-29 at the company’s CEA Learning Center East in South Windsor, CT, and the second will take place May 17-19 in Dyersville, IA.
The workshops offer attendees an education-filled, three-day schedule in which Growers Supply experts and industry specialists will update attendees on the latest trends in new and innovative growing techniques, such as hydroponics, aquaponics, and microgreen production.
The curriculum starts with the basics of controlled environment agriculture, and then advances to how attendees can integrate or improve CEA techniques in their operation. Over the three days, attendees receive valuable information and professional insight on topics such as sizing a greenhouse, temperature and humidity control within a controlled growing environment, integrated pest management techniques, the benefits of specific hydroponic systems and how they compare to others, tapping into two markets with aquaponics, and much more.
The workshops cost $995 for the full three days, and the cost includes a three-day hotel stay, lunch each day, and a complete course workbook.
Upon completion of the workshop, each attendee will receive a $995 product credit that can be used toward the purchase of any controlled environment product, including GrowSpan greenhouses, HydroCycle hydroponic systems, heaters, and more.
