In recent years, there has been increased interest in sustainable production practices among nursery producers, primarily for economic reasons. Conventional nursery production relies heavily on the use of plastic containers, chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and imported substrate (“potting soil”) components.

A team lead by University of Florida and University of Georgia faculty has developed a video series, which can be found on their website, on topics related to sustainable nursery practices that reduce production inputs and associated costs. Additional resources, including curricula for Extension professionals, will be posted there as they become available.

Videos in the series include:

The team also developed these fact sheets.
