Part of the ASCFG Research and the Flower Farmer Webinar Series!
Dr. John M. Dole, North Carolina State University
Jennifer Kalinowksi, North Carolina State University
Dr. John Dole and his colleague Jennifer Kalinowski will present their research on the best practices for postharvest cold storage of cut flowers across multiple species. By developing effective long-term cold storage procedures for cut flower growers and farmers, this research has direct benefit for ASCFG members. The researchers will discuss the exciting outcomes of their research and answer questions from audience members.
Dr. John Dole received his B.S. from Michigan State University and his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota, with both degrees in horticulture. Dole was on the faculty of Oklahoma State University for 11 years before moving to North Carolina State University’s Department of Horticultural Science in 2000. He became director of graduate programs for the department in 2004, department head in 2011, and is the former president of the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS). Currently, Dole serves as the executive advisor for the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, a 2,900-member national organization devoted to the production and use of cut flowers.
About the Research and the Flower Farmer Webinar Series
The goal of this webinar series is to connect ASCFG members with the latest 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.
