Best Management Practices for Greenhouse Crops

http://extension.umass.edu/floriculture/greenhouse-best-management-practices-bmp-manual

Best Management Practices (BMPs) are guidelines intended to enable agricultural production in a profitable, environmentally-sensitive and sustainable manner. BMPs are not meant to be regulatory. Each greenhouse operation and site is different and may require special practices. BMPs are meant to provide guidance as to practices that can be implemented in Massachusetts greenhouses.

The following are UMass, Amherst, Extension Greenhouse Crops and Floriculture Program resources that can be used to develop and implement an environmentally responsible nutrient management plan for greenhouse crops grown in containers.
