January 30 will mark the launch of the second year of e-GRO Alert — an enewsletter from the floriculture specialists at several major universities.

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 its coverage, e-GRO has 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. We would like to thank the American Floral Endowment for providing funding for this years newsletter.

e-GRO 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.  All of the articles are searchable on the website (e-gro.org).  Subscribers will receive an email notification that a new article is posted on the website and can be downloaded.  

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.
