Presentation Transcript


Environmental Resource Management Systems for Nurseries, Greenhouses and Landscapes

  • North Carolina State University

  • ARS-McMinnville

  • Tennessee State University

  • University of Florida

  • ARS - Ft. Pierce

  • Clemson University


Environmental Challenges

  • excess nutrients, pesticide displacement and water movement from irrigation

  • soil-less substrates, plastic containers and non-permeable groundcovers,

  • alter and enhance the off-site movement of pesticides and nutrients.


Environmental Challenges

  • Urban landscape contributes to increased nutrient and pesticides in surface and ground waters.


Objective 1maximization of nutrient and water utilization efficiency

  • Ted Bilderback - Substrates - NCSU

  • Stuart Warren - Physiologist - NCSU

  • Donna Fare - Physiologist -ARS McMinnville

  • Chris Cantazara - Horticulturalist -TSU


Objective 2mitigation of nutrient and pesticide contaminants in off-site drainage

  • Chris Wilson - ENTOX - UF

  • Tom Yeager - HORT- UF

  • Joe Albano - Physiologist - ARS Ft Pierce FL

  • Ted Whitwell -Pesticides - CU

  • Steve Klaine - ENTOX - CU

  • Mickey Taylor - ENTOX - CU

  • Bob Polomski - HORT - CU


Objective 3ornamentals to improve water quality in nurseries and urban landscape

  • Steve Klaine - Environmental Toxicology - CU

  • Mickey Taylor - Environmental Toxicology - CU

  • Bob Polomski - Horticulture - Landscape plants - CU

  • Ted Whitwell - Pesticides/Herbicides - CU


GOALS

  • Economical methods to improve exiting water quality.

  • Self-contained and self-remediating with respect to runoff water.

  • Increase production efficiency.

  • New markets for ornamental plants, and the development of a better selection of landscape plants.

  • Transfer technology for implementation of the strategies and methodologies developed in this research.
