Perhaps second only to pollinator protection, the buzz surrounding the use of wood fiber substrates has increased drastically in the past 2-3 years. Dr. Brian Jackson, Associate Professor with North Carolina State University, will cover the history and evolution of wood fiber substrates and explore the properties and performances of many commercial products.

Laboratory and grower analysis and trial data will also be presented to cover some perspectives of the potentials and issues with wood fiber mixes. Q & A will follow presentation.
