Our Project

Project Background:

This website is being developed as an on-line Knowledge Center for Water and Nutrient Management and Conservation, for the Nursery and Greenhouse industries in the United States.

This educational site is primarily intended to serve a variety of professionals who are involved in the management of intensive plant production systems in the Eastern United States, since many of these issues and priorities are similar in many States.

This project is funded through an Extension grant from the USDA-CREES - National Integrated Water Quality Program , to help achieve the larger goals of the National Water Program and integrating with the goals of the Mid-Atlantic and Southern Region water quality programs. In addition, this Knowledge Center intends to integrate with the National Extension Water Outreach Education project and observe Best Education Practice goals.
