Plug & Cutting 2019


Start seeding smarter solutions for better performance in Charlotte, North Carolina, at Plug & Cutting 2019


September 4 - 6, 2019

Embassy Suites
Charlotte-Concord, North Carolina
The road to better performance starts at AmericanHort’s Plug & Cutting Conference. As the event for young plant producers and growers from across the country, this conference is the place to learn the newest and best strategies, technologies, and techniques in the world of plugs and cuttings.


Professional Development + Production Tour + In-Depth Workshop

Some of the best learning happens outside of a classroom. And getting up close and personal with the companies who are changing the way growing is happening can lead you straight to the better, smarter solutions faster than ever.
At Plug & Cutting 2019, we’re visiting two diverse and unique North Carolina greenhouses - Metrolina Greenhouses and Rockwell Farms.

Metrolina Greenhouses
Metrolina Greenhouses is a family-owned wholesale plant and services company. They are the largest single-site heated greenhouse in the United States with 162 acres under roof. In addition, they have approximately 15 acres of outdoor growing space (and still expanding!). Metrolina Greenhouses is one of the most automated greenhouses in the country using internally designed machines like automatic plant transplanters and mechanical shipping belts.

Rockwell Farms
Rockwell Farms is a family-owned and operated commercial greenhouse. With 36 acres of environmentally controlled greenhouse space, they are ranked the 51st largest grower in the United States and have been recognized by Greenhouse Grower Magazine as a Top 100 Grower in the United States. Rockwell Farms is member of MPS, an environmental sustainability program for greenhouse growers, and has improved their environmental footprint by monitoring and reducing their use of water, energy, fertilizers, and crop protection agents.
