Finish Your Poinsettia Crop Successfully
Welcome to the American Floral Endowment's Grow Pro Webinar Series! Throughout this series, our nationally recognized researchers, hosts, and speakers will offer ‘how-to’ advice based on AFE-funded and other research projects to help the industry navigate through these ever-changing growing challenges. The webinar topics are current and offer long-term opportunities for growers to focus on increased profit, greater sustainability, and improved labor efficiency. Each session includes a presentation and interactive Q&A. To see the full series calendar visit endowment.org/GrowPro.

The October 18th session of our series focuses on finishing your poinsettia crop correctly.

Producing the best poinsettias requires special attention throughout the crop. The production practices used in the final four to five weeks of the crop will have a significant impact on the success in shipping your plants and the ability for the plants to withstand the display and consumer conditions. In this webinar, you will learn the details and best practices to finishing your crop successfully.

Topics Include:
• When should you stop applying PGR’s?
• Understanding changes in fertilizer and watering needed in final four to five weeks
• Guidelines for temperatures in final weeks
• Best practices for shipping
