Berry Sessions at Canadian Greenhouse Conference
On Thursday, October 6th, CGC is hosting an entire series of talks dedicated to berry production, and our own Shawn Mallen will be on the stage!
Getting Off the Ground: Growing Berries in Substrates
The introduction of substrate has had an enormous impact on Canada’s berry industry. By getting plants off the ground and into substrate, growers are extending their season and reducing overall labour inputs, while improving the quality and consistency of their product. But getting started with substrate can be intimidating. Tunnels or tabletop? Containers or grow bags? Which substrate is best for my plants? This Berry Substrate 101 presentation by A.M.A. Horticulture’s Shawn Mallen will share what systems to consider, what substrates are available and helpful tips to make sure you’re getting it right.
Other berry session speakers include Katie Goldenhar from Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Rural Affairs; Rose Seguin from Sollum Technologies; and Edward Durner from Rutgers University. We are proud to sponsor the 2022 Berry Production sessions once again this year and look forward to an afternoon of learning and growing!
