  • Webinar 1. Research update about Clean WateR3 for growers by Dr. Sarah White from Clemson University is in 4 days  (details)

    24 Jan 2017

    Register here for this free webinar.

    Take home messages from a major research project that involves 22 researchers in 9 universities. The project is helping growers to:

    Reduce water use and contaminant loading via treatment technologies and improved water management strategies.

    Remediate contaminants in irrigation water (pathogen, pesticides, nutrients, and particles).

    Recycle irrigation water, with new online and published information.

  • Webinar 2. Manage diseases caused by Phytophthora and Pythium in nurseries by Dr. Johanna Del Castillo and Dr. Cassandra Swett from University of Maryland is in 11 days  (details)

    31 Jan 2017

    Register here for this free webinar. 

    Understand the biology of waterborne pathogens, in order to successfully manage root rot and other diseases.

  • Webinar 3. How do leading growers solve water quality issues? by Dr. Paul Fisher from University of Florida is in 3 weeks  (details)

    7 Feb 2017

    Register here for this free webinar. 

    There is no silver bullet that treats all water quality issues. Learn from growers who are successfully managing problems such as bacteria, particles, iron, and agrichemical residues in water.

  • Webinar 4. Reasons we do or do not use water treatments and technologies by Dr. Alexa Lamm and Laura Warner from University of Florida is in 4 weeks  (details)

    14 Feb 2017

    Register here for this free webinar.

    The latest social science research results detailing why we, as an industry, care a lot about water protection or conservation but then choose not to adopt water conserving technologies or treatments.  This webinar will inspire growers to think about adoption and will assist extension specialists and researchers in understanding how to develop technologies and provide instructions that will make it easier for growers to adopt.

  • Webinar 5. Enhance irrigation practices through audits and monitoring by Jim Owen from Virginia Tech University is in 5 weeks  (details)

    21 Feb 2017

    Register here for this free webinar.

    Water is central to containerized crop production. Learn about simple techniques to know and improve water application efficiency.  

  • Webinar 6. Sensor-controlled irrigation and pathogen management by John Lea-Cox from University of Maryland is in 6 weeks  (details)

    28 Feb 2017

    Register here for this free webinar.

    We will illustrate how better irrigation management substantially reduces nutrient leaching and runoff, which conserves scarce freshwater resources and reduces the potential for pathogen movement from production areas.
