The fifth article of this five-part series about the tools you need to measure environmental and cultural parameters in your greenhouse, you will learn why you should be using data loggers and how to best put them to use.
In part three of this five-part series about the tools you need to keep track of your greenhouse environment, learn how to effectively use quantum sensors to monitor how much light your plants need for optimal growth.
In part two of this five-part series about the tools you need to keep track of your greenhouse environment, learn about the various methods for tracking pH and EC.
Growers use many tools to monitor the greenhouse environment. Learn about the best practices for using an infrared thermometer to measuring plant temperature.
In the second article of a two-part series, researchers discuss methods for using plant growth regulators to bulk purple fountain grass and regulate its height.
In the first article of a two-part series, researchers discuss how propagation daily light integral and root-zone temperature influence root growth and development of single-internode purple fountain grass culm cuttings.
Researchers at Purdue and Michigan State University compare young and finished plant production under LED toplighting and HPS lamps to determine which source is most effective.
A survey by researchers from Purdue University and Michigan State University report the hurdles growers face when propagating perennials, and the practices they use to root them successfully.
Researchers determine if bench-top root-zone heating in combination with reduced air temperatures is an effective method for poinsettia cold finishing.
Michigan State University Extension is now offering a non-credit, pre-recorded online course on greenhouse and horticultural lighting. […]
Researchers determine how sole-source LED lighting can be used effectively for the production of bedding plant seedlings.
In Part 3 of a four-part lighting series highlighting the multiple uses of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), researchers examine the effects of sole-source LED lighting on microgreen production to achieve the highest quality crop possible in an energy efficient manner.
Do you find that your purple fountain grass (Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’) crop is often green to light purple? […]
In the first of a four-part series highlighting the multiple uses of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), researchers share how end-of-production supplemental lighting with LEDs enhances red leaf lettuce color prior to harvesting and shipping.
