Growers Supply to host CEA workshop

Growers Supply will be hosting its next CEA Hands-On Workshop April 27-29 at the company’s CEA Learning Center East in South Windsor, Connecticut.

The April CEA Hands-on Workshop offers attendees a three-day schedule in which Growers Supply experts and industry specialists educate attendees on growing techniques, such as hydroponics, aquaponics and microgreen production.

Growers Supply’s April CEA Hands-on Workshop costs $995 for the full three days. This cost includes a three-day hotel stay, lunch each day and a complete course workbook.

Upon completion of the workshop, each attendee will receive a $995 product credit that can be used towards the purchase of any controlled environment product, including GrowSpan greenhouses, HydroCycle hydroponic systems, heaters and more.

The workshop’s curriculum begins with the basics of controlled environment agriculture, and then advances to how attendees can integrate or improve CEA techniques in their operation. Over the three days, attendees receive information and professional insight on topics such as sizing a greenhouse, temperature and humidity control within a controlled growing environment, integrated pest management techniques, the benefits of specific hydroponic systems and how they compare to others, tapping into two markets with aquaponics and much more.

To sign up for the upcoming April CEA Hands-On Workshop contact Kelley Roche at 800.476.9715 ext. 1649.
