Managing Ethylene Risk in the Supply Chain

Date: Thursday, March 1, 2018

If you grow flowering or bedding plants you know that ethylene is the enemy, causing flower drop, yellow foliage and reduced plant life. But how to protect against it? Ethylbloc may be the answer. It’s a compound that, as its name implies, helps shield flowering plants from damaging ethylene.

In this webinar, you’ll learn from four experts about how to successfully mitigate the risk of Ethylene gas damage during shipment. They’ll share:

- The economic risks and potential losses caused by ethylene
- The conditions that create ethylene, how to identify the problem and what the damage looks like
- How and when to apply Ethylbloc, and the expected outcome
- How you can get a free risk assessment by a field expert, with recommendations
