In-Depth Strawberry Substrate Workshop

February 11 - February 13, 2020

In-Depth Strawberry Substrate Workshop

Growing strawberries in substrate (soil-less media) can help prevent soil-borne diseases. It can also increase yields, improve quality, and reduce the costs associated with pesticides, fertilizer, and water. In this 3-day workshop, led by Dennis Wilson of Delphy, a worldwide leader in food and flower production based in the Netherlands, we'll combine classroom and hands-on sessions in Cornell's greenhouses to learn about the most effective methods for strawberry substrate production. The workshop is limited to 35 participants, all of whom will walk away with the skills and knowledge they need to grow strawberries on substrate.  

Breakfast, lunch, and printed handouts included.

Cost: $195 NYS Berry Growers Association members; $245 non-members
