Controlled Environment Agriculture Webinar Series

Friday, January 14, 2022

 Dr. Fadi Al-Daoud, OMAFRA's Greenhouse Vegetable Specialist, will be hosting a webinar series focused on Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA). This will cover information relevant to all  protected crops, including berries, vegetables and floriculture. 

Join Fadi, and his guest speaker Peter Kamp, in the first installment of this webinar series on January 20, 2022 at 1 pm AST. Peter will be discussing a new crop steering principle which hinge on the basis of overall water balance within a plant. 

For those of you who are not familiar with the concept of plant steering, it operates on the basis of manipulating environmental factors to encourage vegetative or generative growth. Both vegetative and generative growth are important for establishing a healthy crop, but it is important that the timing of these two stages happens at specific time points during the cropping cycle. There are a handful of ways  we can push a crop towards increasingly vegetative growth, or increasingly generative growth, and this webinar looks to discuss a new tool to be added to our steering toolbox. For more information on crop steering, check out three of our previous posts titled 'Creating a Balance'. Each has been tagged with the tagline 'vegetative' and 'generative', so scroll through our tag list on the right side of your screen to take a look!
