Dipping unrooted vegetative cuttings to reduce pest
Added on 12 February 2024
A recent eGRO alert highlights how Canadian scientists began investigating dipping unrooted vegetative cuttings a dozen years ago. The technique was refined about five years ago with a series of trials performed by Dr. Rose Buitenhuis (Vineland Research & Innovation Centre) and 73% of Ontario growers began dipping their incoming cuttings in 2022. This technique is gaining traction with greenhouse growers.
