MIAMI - George Staby, president of the Perishables Research Organization PRO and owner and operator of the Chain of Life Network website has announced that despite having reached retirement age, his personality is not allowing him to enter the life of pickle ball and golf. As Staby needs the excitement interacting with floral industry members. Hence, the reason for the low cost workshops he is now offering to the floral industry.  

Just about any subject can be covered in the workshops that influences the quality of floral crops and thereby consumer satisfaction and profits for floral businesses. A sampling of possible topics includes production factors (light, fertilizers, species, cultivars, growing media, etc.), ethylene control, flower food usage, water quality, transportation modes, temperature and relative humidity, precooling, flower color, disease identification and control, growing container design, growing media, bunching, packaging, flower design, dry verses wet storage, and flower/plant processing.  

Each workshop will be designed for the specific audience and time allotment based on discussions with the workshop providers. “It is highly recommended that at least a two-hour program be utilized with three to four hour or longer programs being even better in order that the topics can be properly covered. One or two day programs are also possible and even desirable for certain audiences”, says Staby.
