Drs. Dole and Gibson have gathered the most up-to-date information about cutting propagation to help you root and grow the best crops possible. All the bases are covered—propagation basics, stock plant management, media, temperature, light, nutrition, PGRs, insect and disease management, equipment, and postharvest. From these general subjects, the editors focus in on specifics for specialty bedding plants, perennials, specialty cut flowers, and foliage plants. Then they zoom in even closer, covering more than 60 crops in detail. If you’re a full-time propagator or provide your own starter materials for your crops, Cutting Propagation will arm you with the knowledge you need to grow consistent, high-quality young plants.
