A new YouTube video (https://youtu.be/lkSiSmDwIqw) by Dr. Paul Fisher from the University of Florida IFAS Extension describes how to sample, interpret, and solve chemical issues for water used to irrigate greenhouses and nurseries. Dr. Fisher introduces the free online WaterQual tool at cleanwater3.org to interpret your water quality analysis.
This video is the first in a new series called “Five Tips for Horticulture” featured on the Greenhouse Training Online channel (https://tinyurl.com/ufgto). The series will highlight technical topics from university and industry experts. Look for upcoming videos on topics such as growing media, vermicompost, and nutrient control in hydroponics.
The channel is sponsored by the Floriculture Research Alliance (floriculturealliance.org).
