Join us for a Webinar on July 31
In this webinar, Dr. Brent Pemberton will discuss the 2013-14 plans for the Texas Superstar program.It isn’t easy to become a Texas Superstar® plant. Only the toughest, most reliable and best-looking plants make the cut. Every plant earning the Texas Superstar® designation undergoes several years of extensive field trials by Texas AgriLife Research and the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, both part of the Texas A&M System. They must be proven to be super-performing plants under Texas growing conditions. During the field trials, plants receive minimal soil preparation,minimal water and no pesticides.
Dr. Pemberton’s area of research is in nursery and floriculture crop production and physiology. His research has an emphasis on field production of rose plants including work on propagation and irrigation practices, production systems, weed and disease control, and postharvest care and shipping. He is working with a group of scientists on improving disease resistance in roses. He is also studying the effects of production environment on and the involvement of ethylene in postproduction shipping and decorative life problems with potted roses. In addition, bedding plant pack and garden trials are performed each spring and fall featuring new varieties available for production in the bedding plant industry. Various problems with bedding plant production and utilization are also being addressed.
