    Bug Bites: Supplemental nutrition: theory and application

    September 28, 2021 11:00AM – 12:00PM Zoom

    Bug Bites is an intermediate-level online seminar series on greenhouse biological control. In this seminar, Veronica Cervantes from BioBest USA discusses supplemental nutrition and how it can improve the performance of biological control agents.

  • Sole-source (lighting) for seed

    Published on April 5, 2021
    By producing plants indoors under sole-source lighting, not only can we control plant traits by manipulating the light quality and/or quantity. but we can potentially produce more resilient plants.

  • “Hidden” benefits of supplemental lighting

    Published on April 7, 2021
    High light can at least partly decrease the effects of other environmental parameters on greenhouse crops. These can be considered “hidden” benefits because the effects are often not obvious.

  • Identifying & Managing Spotted Spurge (Chamaesyce maculata) in Nurseries & Greenhouses

    Published on September 1, 2021
    Chamaesyce maculata or Euphorbia maculata is known as spotted spurge or spotted sandmat, a common broadleaf weed in nurseries, and noncrop areas. This bulletin will help growers identify, understand its biology, and develop strategies for managing it.

  • Increasing the daily light integral

    Published on August 6, 2021
    The daily light integral (DLI) refers to the cumulative amount of light received per day, which influences the quality and yield of horticultural crops. This article discusses ways to increase the DLI for plants grown in greenhouses.
