July 2014 Issue

Features
Good … and Plenty | Chris Beytes, Ellen C. Wells and Jennifer Zurko
While Spring 2014 is going down as memorable for its molasses-slow start and hot-sauce finish, Spring Trials 2014 will be remembered for a thousand attendees from around the world, untold new varieties to choose from, great weather and inspiration galore.

Plug & Cutting Conference: Advanced pH Management | Paul Fisher, Ryan Dickson, Bill Argo & Bruce Mackay
To lead up to AmericanHort’s Plug & Cutting Conference, we’ll be highlighting a few of the topics that will be discussed directly from a few of the event’s speakers. This month: matching the nitrogen ratio in fertilizer to your water alkalinity and crop species.



Culture Notes
Recipe for Fall-Finish Echinacea Production | Bin Liu
PowWow Wild Berry and Cheyenne Spirit Echinacea can be successfully produced as a fall crop to reach those key, cool-season decorating and gardening markets.

Add a Little Glamour to Your Perennial Lineup | Jeremy Windemuller
If you’re wary of growing phlox because of its notorious disease issues, take another look at Phlox Glamour Girl that shows tremendous resistance to powdery mildew in production and garden use.



Columns
Getting All the Facts | Jennifer Zurko
In a world of soundbites and bullet points, getting to the real truth about something is even more difficult than ever before.

Achieving Our Biological Goals | Roger McGaughey
Growing clean crops without harsh chemicals is better for the employees, the environment and ultimately the end consumer. It takes a lot of organization, patience and discipline to get things right, but it’s achievable if activities are performed in a timely manner.




Under an Acre

Operating Blue Stem Farm—a four-season farm in Northern Michigan—may seem like a strange career choice for a chef and graphic designer, but for the Browers, it was the perfect fit.
Pest Management

Poinsettia growers will remember the 2012 growing season, when high numbers of Bemisia whiteflies came in on the cuttings and were very hard to control. This experience has taught us that new tools are needed to disinfest cuttings, so that growers can be sure to start with a clean crop every year.
Growers Talk Business

We saw great sales this spring, but don’t get all excited and throw caution to the wind and increase production next year so that we cannot maintain upward pricing for the future.
Acres & Acres

In April, I sent out my annual April Fools edition of Acres Online. What I've learned from perpetrating these myths is that I can mislead otherwise-intelligent people simply by surrounding a lie with lots of truths.
