There are many factors that influence the health of crops leading up to dispatch and beyond. These include the health of mother stock and other propagative material, environmental conditions over the life of the crop, nursery inputs (e.g. fertiliser, irrigation, growing media conditions etc), presence of pests and pathogens and the requirements of the crop in question.

Individually, managing these inputs can be achieved with ease. However, most nurseries grow large numbers of crop lines and may have to manage many pests, diseases and plant requirements to produce healthy crops. This can be challenging and may result in unsalable plants.

In this webinar, we will discuss how to fine-tune growing practices and crop inputs to suit the crops you grow.

This webinar will be helpful for experienced and less experienced nursery managers covering relatively basic concepts and more advanced/challenging best practice management actions.
