IPPS Tour Undeterred by Rain in New Jersey
In spite of continued rain, spirits remained high as attendees toured three premier production nurseries in New Jersey on the second day of our 2018 conference held in Newark Delaware.  Following a morning of great speakers, buses headed out to Centerton Nursery, Overdevest Nurseries and Rivendell Nursery.  Tour details and photos HERE.  

Greenhouse Climate Screens Offer Savings

Climate screens or energy/shade curtains affect the incoming light transmission and heat retention within a greenhouse-both factors that greatly affect a greenhouse's total energy usage. While greenhouse curtains represent an upfront expense, they typically pay for themselves in energy savings in three to five years, and sometimes in as few as 18 months. 
Check out predicted energy cost reductions and learn how to optimize your overall greenhouse climate HERE.
