Oct 18, 2022

Engaging with sustainable horticulture is both a responsible and practical way to cultivate plants. In today’s day and age, developing skills in gardening is more important than ever – and you’d be shocked by how accessible and interesting this area of expertise really is… 

In this episode, we sit down with horticulturist Juan Carlos Díaz-Pérez. Juan is a Professor in the Department of Horticulture at the University of Georgia where he does extensive research on vegetable production and physiology. 

Sustainability is an important facet of Juan’s work, and he is uncovering ways to effectively farm vegetables while also taking into account the welfare of our environment.

Join us now as Juan discusses:

  • How climate change is impacting agricultural production.
  • The advantages and disadvantages of using plastics in agriculture.
  • How mulch affects plant growth, and why researchers are looking into ways to make mulch more sustainable.
