Bioplastic container systems are being developed in which container materials are both biorenewable and biodegradable. In this research and extension project, materials scientists and engineers will create prototypes of specialty crop containers for evaluation.
Under the leadership of Dr. Tim Rhodus, Professor, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH and Ernest Witney, Systems Manager the Ohio State Landscape Horticulture team has updated and improved the BasicGreen website.
In January and February, 2014 we experienced severe cold and the ground was frozen well below the root systems of most conifers. The shortage of water from the fall and the depletion of limited reserves of available water during freeze-thaw cycles above the snow line lead to a "Perfect Storm" for severe winterburn.
