The amount of attention these researchers, growers and agronomists pay to each plant is unusual. But it is obvious that attention is critical to the learning and research process. It is also clear that attention to the plant pays off.
Dave Alexander from AgriScience Technologies in Michigan took all the participants back to the basics when he reviewed the plant growth cycle and talked about managing the balance of hormones through out the cycle and stress conditions.
Leo Brostowitz challenged the group to remember what makes Stoller products
different–spending time with your plants and striving to understand what is impacting the plant’s productivity. He wrapped up his presentation talking about amazing potato results. Good looking “big” spuds in very productive hills. A potato grower’s dream.
Sure there is a lot of talk about Stoller products at this conference… but it is all in reference to what is learned in the field. I wonder if Jerry Stoller knew how big this conference would become…. with 50 countries represented and over 100 participants.
As I have heard Mr. Stoller often say: ” Understanding the language of the plants is the beginning of Unleashing the Power of the Plants.”
Today –at this Houston conference– there’s a room full of experts that agree!
