Greenhouse growers in BC will not want to miss the 62nd annual Horticulture Growers Short Course the year.

Running from January 30 to February 1, 2020, the short course features a number of greenhouse-specific topics on the first two days, including the biology of the tomato brown rugose fruit virus (ToBRFV), greenhouse biosecurity, common mistakes made in biocontrol, insect netting, blackout screens and the role of artificial intelligence.

There will also be an all-day cannabis-specific program on Friday January 31. Called ‘Cannatech West,’ speakers will address major pests in cannabis, botrytis management, HVAC and energy considerations, growing media and flower processing.
