Pest management researcher discusses the Interregional Research Project No. 4, commonly known as IR-4, a federally funded program that assists growers of ornamental horticulture crops in obtaining safe and effective pest management tools.
Correctly diagnosing a plant problem for nursery growers can be challenging. However, the right diagnostic resources coupled with an early and appropriate diagnosis can prevent pests or pathogens from spreading, saving time and money.
Plant pathologists track where Phytophthora ramorum came from and how it has managed to spread. The author specifically discusses Phytophthora ramorum clones and mating types and tracking the migration of the pathogen.
The Oregon State University affiliated authors strive to answer the question of whether plant physiology and breeding research can work collectively to develop more water-efficient and drought tolerant plants that will benefit the green industry.
Researchers at Oregon State University have been studying how soilless substrates can be used together with moisture monitoring equipment to get the best results while reducing the need to irrigate. Topics specifically addressed include soilless substrate and water management.
John Lambrinos, assistant professor of horticulture with Oregon State University, discusses how the fields of horticulture and restoration ecology can work together in a mutually beneficial way to improve the environment.

No matter how small, slugs and snails can cause huge headaches for growers. Fortunately, there are many ways these pests can be managed and eliminated. The author discusses the importance of and the different factors involved in a good integrated pest management plan.
Pests and pathogens are a threat for growers that produce containerized nursery stock. The authors discuss how to reduce these threats by considering the type of containers and growing media they use, where they are sourced, how they are handled, and how they are stored.
