Purdue Extension will host a hydroponics workshop from 7:30 a.m.-noon, Sept. 8, at Purdue’s Whistler Hall of Agricultural Research, 170 S. University St., Room 116, West Lafayette.
“Growing green leaf produce in greenhouses or by indoor-based hydroponics is rapidly increasing near urban areas in Indiana,” said Krishna Nemali, assistant professor of Purdue’s Horticulture and Landscape Architecture.
“To bridge the gap in learning and increase the competitiveness of Indiana and Midwestern growers, Purdue Extension specialists and researchers have developed workshops to provide experiential learning to growers,” Nemali said.
This workshop will focus on supplemental lighting for winter production, strategies for successful production in indoor or vertical farms, biological pest control, fertilizer recipes and injectors and ongoing research in greenhouses.
