WEBINAR: PGRs in Tree Care

Lunch and Learn Opportunity - PGRs in Tree Care

July 24, 2024

12:00PM-1:00PM EST
1 MDARD credit pending

Reducing the amount of top growth a plant puts on in a season can be beneficial from an aesthetic and pruning labor standpoint.  Modern growth regulators offer a host of secondary health benefits that improve a plant's chances of surviving in our urbanized ecosystems.  By the end of this talk attendees should have a better understanding of how plant growth regulators work, and their application in the landscape.

Join us for the informative webinar!
