The DIG Conference boasts four comprehensive tracks of on-demand and live education geared towards taking your skills to the next level. With tactical topics in the world of disease, pest management and biocontrols, growth regulators,
new technologies, sanitation, IPM strategies, and more, you’ll walk away with the latest strategies and best practices to help your greenhouse perform better.
With the limited number of tools in the hemp grower’s toolbox, planning and executing an effective management strategy for your hemp crop can be a challenge. In the Hemp Education Track, join fellow growers and leading researchers in the discovery of effective methods for managing the health of your hemp crop.
Diseases can have a huge impact on a grower’s bottom line, especially in ornamentals. From mildews to root rot, the Diseases Education Track will cover strategies for disease control through cultural, chemical, and biological management.
Insect & Mite Pests
Take your defense to offense with the Insect & Mite Pests Education Track.
These sessions will cover a range of topics from insecticide rotation to new pests to be on the lookout for.
Plant Growth Regulators (PGRs)
Plant Growth Regulators can be one of the strongest, and most difficult to manage, tools in a grower’s toolbox. The PGR Education Track will help growers determine how to effectively use PGRs in their greenhouse through the exploration of the latest research and methods from industry experts.
Register for the virtual DIG Conference and take your IPM & PGR strategies to the next level with in-depth education and grower-focused networking events.
