Over the last 2 years, companies have been reinventing the manner in which they conduct business. COVID created an air of uncertainty that, ironically, enabled us to reimagine our business models and implement change in a matter of months - change that would have easily taken years to implement previously. We find ourselves in a vastly different economic climate, one that invokes the use of inflation and interest rates along with fiscal policies and funding measures. In this presentation, Dr. Hall will update his latest forecast and project economic performance over the next several years. Learn how these economic pressures relate to the green industry supply chain and the challenges faced by companies upstream and downstream in the supply chain. You will leave with a better understanding of how these challenges affect your business, as well as tips for taking advantage of the opportunities they may offer such as developing stronger linkages throughout the supply chain and how pricing strategies and SKU rationalization can improve profitability. This session will also explore how your business can anticipate the rising costs of doing business (from supply chain related pressures) and how to incorporate these unknowns when developing client proposals, quotes, and contracts and right-sizing your inventory. Lastly, Dr. Hall will explore how current fiscal policies (e.g., the recently approved infrastructure package) and other funding measures (e.g., Build Back Better) that will directly impact your business, planning and accounting practices.

In most cases, a good employee in a labor-based position is more valuable than a single piece of equipment. However, that new piece of equipment will come with a warranty

and an opportunity to test it out before you put it in on your jobsite. Unfortunately, new employees don’t come with warranties or test drives, but what if you could get a peek “under the hood” before you put them to work? • Avoid hiring someone else’s Worker’s Compensation claim • How to establish “Fit-For-Duty” testing • Compliant hiring processes • How to get injured employees back to work (Return to Wellness) • Compliant communication with applicants, new hires and existing employees 9:30 AM - 10:20 AM

LEAN- Winning Through Production Efficiency

2:00 PM - 2:50 PM

Commercial Landscaping with a Twist: Importance of Forming Cross-Specialty Business Partnerships Leanne Kenealy Atkins, Dynamic Plants (Approved CEU: LCB-1, NALP-1) Horticulturist, propagator, and self-professed plant nerd Leanne Kenealy Atkins wasn’t looking for a job in commercial landscaping. But as part of a new generation in the green industry, she’s found a twist on the traditional concept that gives her flexibility and the chance to use all her skills. She designs and maintains small-scale green spaces alongside landscape contractors and designers. The landscaping companies keep the big jobs that are profitable for them, while she handles the smaller spaces and finishing touches. It might be creating showy, seasonal containers, planting a green wall, or designing and maintaining shared vegetable beds. This collaboration lets Leanne and her partner companies focus on the maintenance they’re best 14 | SHOWBOOK | GREEN&GROWIN’ 22

Ben Gandy, Envisor Consulting (Approved CEU: LCB-1, ICB-1, NALP-1) With limited availability and rising labor rates, it is becoming harder every day to achieve desired margins. Today’s challenging labor environment is forcing business leaders to refocus on field level productivity in order to get a higher return on every hour invested. Successful companies are learning to do more with less. Not by working harder but working smarter. In this presentation Envisor’s Ben Gandy will present best practices learned from some of the world’s top productivity experts in how to identify and eliminate waste in landscape production. 9:30 AM - 10:20 AM

Weed Management in Color Beds Dr. Joe Neal, NCSU (Approved CEU: LC-1, PA- 1 credit for D, L, N, X, NALP-1) In this presentation Dr. Neal will review the steps necessary to develop a cost-effective weed management

plan for color beds. Because herbaceous annuals and perennials are sensitive to many herbicides, weed management is more challenging than in woody plant beds. A weed management plan for color beds will include (1) site preparation to control perennial weeds, (2) properly applied mulches, (3) careful selection and use of herbicides, (4) sanitation to prevent weeds from spreading into the plantings, and (5) robust growth of the ornamental plants to exclude late-germinating weeds. 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM

Perennial Favorites Get an Upgrade Kata Kress Wallace, Walters Gardens (Approved CEU: LC-1, NALP-1; Pending: LA) Sticking with plants you know is a good strategy. You know how they’ll perform and what it takes to maintain them, and they’re often longtime favorites. But what if those longtime favorites got an upgrade? What if they were familiar, yet performed better and were easier to maintain? Walters Gardens, Inc. has an intense breeding program in herbaceous perennials, along with a research and trialing department. New cultivars undergo a rigorous and lengthy selection and evaluation process before they’re introduced to the market. Their newer selections not only bring improved flower qualities like color or size, but also offer improvements in habits, disease resistance, and blooming traits. This presentation compares well-used cultivars to newer ones and highlights the benefits of going with the upgrade. It also includes how to care for these cultivars and outlines expectations for landscape crews charged with maintaining them.

Mycorrhizae, an Easy-to-use Tool for Success in the Landscape Blair Busenbark, Mycorrhizae (Approved CEU: LC-1, PA-1 credit for D, L, N, X, NALP-1, SAF-0.5 Cat. 1) Blair Busenbark explores the science behind mycorrhizae and then moves his focus to how landscapers can utilize the power of mycorrhizae in their business. Mycorrhizae use can allow Landscape Architects and Designers the opportunity to ensure their landscape vision becomes a long-term reality. Landscape installers will appreciate mycorrhizae reducing transplant shock and plant loss, which in turn reduces plant replacement costs. Landscape maintenance crews will appreciate the plant’s improved resilience to stressful conditions and improved garden performance. Thus, allowing them to focus more on landscape maintenance and less on plant care triage. Whatever sector of the landscape value chain you work in, mycorrhizae use can add value to you and your customers, which in turn will increase profits, customer satisfaction and new business referrals.

Perennial Success in the South

Dr. Gretchen Pettis, Bio Safe

Inga Meadows, NCSU

(Approved CEU: LC-1, NALP-1, PA-1, SAF-0.5 Cat. 1) Researchers and growers are increasingly discovering new and better ways to effectively and economically utilize biorationals and beneficials to decrease plant damage and reduce the environmental impacts of plant health management in the nursery and landscape. Supply chain maturation, market competition, and rearing and release innovations make this type of pest management ever more viable for growers and landscape pest managers of all sizes. This session will introduce you to the ins and outs of incorporating biocontrol tactics and biorational pesticides into a successful pest management plan.

(Approved CEU: LC-1, PA- 1 for D, L, N, X, NALP-1, SAF-0.5 Cat. 1; Pending: ISA) Species of Phytophthora are soil borne organisms that, once established, can be difficult to manage. An integrated approach is necessary to be successful with this pathogen on ornamentals in the landscape. Three years of research in screening landscape herbaceous ornamentals for their ability to perform in Phytophthora infested landscape beds will be presented. In addition, general management practices including fungicide efficacy will be highlighted.
