Wood fibre and growing media, its production and impacts on plant performance - Webinar

Event Time 7.30pm
Venue Online
Join us on 17th June at 7.30pm, for a Teagasc Webinar reviewing wood fibre use in professional horticultural growing media.

Dr Brian Jackson, North Carolina State university, has been researching wood fibre use in growing media for over a decade. Dr Jackson is very familiar with the Irish media sector and has visited Ireland a number of times in the last decade.

Dr Jackson will discuss the different sources of wood fibre and impacts on growth of bedding, perennials and woody plants. As the sector moves towards growing media with lower peat and higher wood fibre this is a great opportunity to see how the US market has adapted to the new materials without loss of plant quality.
