Evaluating Protected Cultivation of Freesia to Diversify Early Cut Flower Production in the Mountain West
May 16 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
Part of the ASCFG Research and the Flower Farmer Webinar Series!
Dr. Melanie Stock, Ben Scow, and Victoria Xiong
Join Dr. Melanie Stock, Ben Scow, and Victoria Xiong from Utah State University as they present on their research on freesia. A recipient of the ASCFG Research Foundation Grant, this project seeks to explore early season cultivation of specialty cut flowers in cold and mountainous regions that are vulnerable to drought during late summers. If the researchers can determine when to plant (and how best to manage different crops) in these regions, the findings could provide new ideas to cut flower growers around the timing of their individual farming schedules. The researchers will discuss the exciting outcomes of their research and answer questions from audience members.
About the Research and the Flower Farmer Webinar Series
The goal of this webinar series is to connect ASCFG members with the latest academic research in cut flowers and to inspire new ideas for crop, farm, and business management. During these online events, recent recipients of the Research Foundation’s Competitive Grants will share synopses of their research, along with the exciting applications of the results, before a short Q and A session with attendees.
Can’t attend a presentation? Don’t worry – the webinar will be recorded and be accessible in the ASCFG Members Only portal after the event.
Zoom instructions will be emailed to members on the day of the event. A recording of this session will be archived in Members Only.
