Greenhouse Mechanization 2004:
Bringing Worldwide Innovations to the Gulf South

This workshop provided an educational opportunity for greenhouse producers to interact with experts in the field of mechanization and automation as well as expose growers to new products and innovations which can be readily incorporated into existing greenhouse production systems. This program was for small and large producers alike. Internationally-recognized experts from across the country discussed how to integrate new systems into existing production practices and how to adapt current practices to improve the labor environment and increase productivity.
