Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are excellent management tools for customizing plant growth.

Two PGR experts, Drs. Joyce Latimer and Brian Whipker, will discuss the basic principles of PGRs, from their benefits, types available, application methods and other considerations.

This is a perfect series of presentations for those new to PGRs or growers who desire to learn a little more background information about how to manage plant growth.

Organizers are following a strict schedule to allow growers to join the webinar based on their interests.
