April 2014 Issue

Features
The Basics of Biologicals | Dr. Raymond A. Cloyd
Wondering if you’re using your biocontrols properly or if they’re even for you? Review Dr. Cloyd’s checklist and find out.

Managing Photoperiodic Lighting | Roberto G. Lopez & Christopher Currey
This second article in a two-part series focuses on what photoperiodic lighting is and how to use it in your greenhouse.



Culture Notes
Using Florel to Delay Flowering in Garden Mums | Bernard Chodyla
Ethephon-based products applied properly have the potential to be used in garden mum production for delaying the natural flowering and crop scheduling.



Columns
“Show Me The Monarchs” | Jennifer Schamber
We created a “call-to-action” campaign that helps raise awareness about the decline of the Monarch butterfly population and also gives consumers the tools needed to be a part of a solution.

Dealing With the Inevitable | Jennifer Zurko
Many of the disease and bug experts I talked to for this issue said pretty much the same thing about pest issues this season—they’re gonna happen.




Under an Acre

Edible Earthscapes in Moncure, North Carolina, is much more than a CSA farm to co-founders Jason and Haruka Oatis. It’s the physical embodiment of a philosophy that reconnects humanity to Mother Nature.

Growers Talk Business

The new reality can’t be ignored, hidden from or outrun. In order to survive you have to ask the future what it wants from you and then you have to do what needs to be done.

We at Ball Publishing have begun a serious study of the bee/neonicotinoid insecticide controversy because this story has touched our little corner of agriculture thanks to some activists in bee suits who are petitioning garden centers to pull insecticide-treated plants from their shelves.
