NC State University Horticultural Substrates Laboratory
Each day we are facing new challenges in floriculture. Most growers are very aware of the current emphasis being placed on water quality, water conservation, and the reduction of runoff from agricultural industries. Another issue that reaches beyond floriculture and affects society as a whole is solid waste management and waste product utilization. Here at N.C. State, these issues are being addressed in an inimitable fashion. Faculty within the Department of Horticultural Science have combined their expertise and formed a powerful research unit, the Horticultural Substrates Laboratory.
