Schuyler Greens Company was honored to host a hydroponic growers conference with top researchers from Virginia Tech, Virginia State University, and Cornell University in late March. The all day event featured leading research on LED lighting, energy efficient greenhouse design, aquaponics, food safety, and the state of the market.

John McMahon, SGC's Founder and Chief Farmer, talked about the challenges and opportunities of the Local Food Movement, in addition to technical hydroponic growing techniques. It was a great event and the goal is to help push hydroponic growing techniques forward by sharing best practices and experiences from a commercial grower's perspective.

Speakers included:

Neil Mattson - Cornell University
Joyce Lattimer - Virginia Tech
Chris Mullins - Virginia State University
Amber Vallotton - Virginia Tech Food Safety
John McMahon - Schuyler Greens Company
