Article, Grower Talks
In the latest Tech On Demand podcast, brought to you by GrowerTalks, host Bill Calkins is joined by Mike Fernandez, Danziger’s market manager for North America. He’s a long-time plant guru and trusted source of knowledge to greenhouse professionals around the world.
They start by discussing the current market, including supply chain issues and solid overall quality that Mike is seeing out there. Then, Mike and Bill jump right into New Guineas and the environmental nuances to consider when shooting for optimum production, focusing on time and temperature. After that, Mike takes a hard look at why the best plan for creating protocols and schedules for URC sticking might just be to stay flexible and make informed decisions on the fly. He also shares tips for minimizing the stress this type of planning can cause. Finally, they spend some time talking about Mike’s trial results with low-input (two or three cuttings) production of baskets and patio pots. The goal with such programs, like Durabella from Danziger, is to help you produce high-quality 12-inch programs with benefits that extend from your greenhouse through retail and onto the end consumer. It’s truly a triple win. You’ll want to listen all the way to the end of this episode, because Mike has a lot of important information to share!
