Event Details

Transplant production plays a key role in a successful vegetable production system. Growing high quality plants requires skill, proper care, and knowledge of the fundamentals of plant growth and management. With adequate greenhouse sanitation measures, good quality seed and growing medium, optimum environmental conditions, and proper pest and disease monitoring program one can successfully grow strong and healthy transplants. Growing healthy, disease free, and quality transplants is the first step growers have to take to achieve higher yields and productivity.
