Peony growers' educational video posted on YouTube

Just in time for the Alaska Peony Growers' winter meeting in Fairbanks, SNRE has posted an educational video that trains farmers how to prepare soil and tissue samples for testing in a lab.

The 13-minute video outlines the exact procedures necessary for gathering and mailing soil and tissue samples. Featuring Research Technician Bob Van Veldhuizen, the video was filmed by Jeff Fay, Cooperative Extension Service media specialist.

"This is superb," said Professor Pat Holloway. "It is just what the growers need. It is clear, concise, very easy to understand and I'm sure it will be well received."
