E-GRO Alert Bulletin: Announcing Year 2

— Written By Amie Newsome

On January 30, we will launch the second year of e-GRO Alert. The overwhelming positive response to the update has been wonderful. The goal of the newsletter is to let growers know of insect, disease, nutritional, or physiological growth situations that are occurring in production greenhouses. So then you know what to be on the look out for.

To expand our coverage, we have added Paul Thomas from the University of Georgia, Dr. Joyce Latimer from Virginia Tech, and Dan Gilrein from Cornell University. So now there are seven contributors from six states (IN, GA, NC, NH, NY, VA). We would like to thank the American Floral Endowment for providing funding for this years newsletter.

We will send out weekly updates during the spring 2013 cropping cycle starting in late January through May. The format will focus on a single problem, management strategies, and contain color photographs. This format will make all articles searchable on our website (e-gro.org). You will receive an email notification that a new article is posted on the website. Then you can download the article if it is of interest.

For a free subscription to the newsletter, go to the following web address (www.e-gro.org/alert.php), and click on the orange SUBSCRIBE button.
