Making the Switch to Soilless Substrate
Part of the Getting into the Weeds: Dialing in Irrigation Webinar Series, join Perennia’s Protected Crop Specialist Talia Plaskett and Dennis Wilson, Delphy UK, for the upcoming session Making the Switch to Soilless Substrate.
As the movement towards greenhouse production strengthens and the complexity of maintaining a productive and healthy soil increases, many are making the switch to soilless substrate. Join us for this two-part segment on exploring the ins and outs of different growing media, and discover how each option is not necessarily ‘one-size-fits-all’.
Dennis Wilson is the managing director and senior berry fruit agronomist with Delphy UK. He has over 35 years of professional experience in berry production, acting as a farm manager, researcher, and agronomist. He was involved in the first commercial strawberry and raspberry substrate production projects in the UK in 1991 and is well versed in the challenges of transitioning into and managing a soil-less production system.
Certified Crop Advisor CEU points will be available for this session.
