Take Good Care of Your Health By Tim Hodson

The health of the plants in your greenhouses corellates directly to the health of your business. If your plants aren’t healthy then, most likely, your bottom line is probably looking a little sickly too.

To help you produce healthy and profitable plants, GPN is introducing the 2014 Plant Health Management Conference. The one-day conference will take place Oct. 7, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The program is designed for growers and greenhouse personnel to learn about the latest disease identification, integrated pest management and plant growth strategies.

Our all-star lineup of presenters includes Jim Barrett, University of Florida; Erik Runkle, Michigan State University; Roger Styer, Styer’s Horticultural Consulting; Sally Miller, Ohio State University; Jamie Gibson, Syngenta; Janna Beckerman, Purdue University; Paul Pilon, Perennial Solutions; and Veronica Cevantes, BioBest.

The conference also will feature tabletop exhibits of the latest products and services from industry vendors.

So if you are looking for ways to grow healthier plants … and to grow your bottom line, Grand Rapids is the place to be in October!

Congrats Again to the Class of ’14

Last month at Cultivate’14, we had a chance to recognize (in person) the majority of the Class of 2014 of GPN’s 40 Under 40.

It was amazing to see so much talent and creativity all in one place.

Stay tuned to www.gpnmag.com because in the coming weeks we will begin taking nominations for the Class of 2015.
