      This guide details the role the Office of Fellowships Advising plays in supporting outstanding UVM students through nationally competitive scholarships. It also is a quick guide to the prestigious national awards available to undergraduates and graduate students. Faculty and staff are encouraged to keep a copy of this guide on file, and are also encouraged to share it with any students they teach, mentor or advise.

      Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, describes the computer controlled environment at their facility. Computers control all aspects of greenhouse environment including climate, photoperiod, and supplemental HID lighting.

      Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, talks with Dr. Peg McMahon, The Ohio State University, about the greatest challenges he sees for his business and for students coming into the horticultural working world.

      Dr. Peg McMahon, Department of Horticulture and Crop Science, The Ohio State University, explains that agriculture is a leading industry in Ohio with floriculture playing an important role. Ohio has approximately 600 growers in the state with about 600 acres under cover. Ohio has four distinct seasons with sub-zero to well over 100 degree F temperatures that create challenges for year-around greenhouse operations.

      Dr. Peg McMahon, The Ohio State University, introduces Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses. Mr. Marotta describes what he and his wife would have done differently in locating their business had they known what they now know. Mr. Marotta also describes what they currently grow (over 300 varieties of fuchsia along with other species) and what his background is.

      Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, explains that his business currently employes 26 associates (18 in production; 8 in retail operations). Mr. Marotta believes that his work force is like an extended family. Without good, quality workers he would not have been able to go his business from 18,000 square foot area to 100,000 square foot over the years.
  • McMahon, Margaret; Wilson, Sandra; Giacomelli, Gene; Kubota, Chieri; Tignor, Milton (2005-02-10
      Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, shows the process they use to produce rooted cuttings for sale to other growers for finishing. He demonstrates the making of 1 to 1.5 inch cuttings, sticking in rooting medium, and after 4 to 8 weeks shows the process of potting up to a container or several cuttings to a hanging basket.

      Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, describes the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program they use in the greenhouse and how important it is for them to be pro-active rather reactive in pest control and monitoring. With the rise of energy costs they are now finding more mildew problems (since they cannot exchange humid inside air with cooler, drier outside air as much as they have in the past, especially at night).
  • McMahon, Margaret; Wilson, Sandra; Giacomelli, Gene; Kubota, Chieri; Tignor, Milton (2005-02-10
      Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, talks with Dr. Peg McMahon, The Ohio State University, about the nutritional program they use at different times of year. They use injectors and mostly drip (but also hose watering) on plant material and change the fertilizer recipe to match plant growth and development.
  • McMahon, Margaret; Wilson, Sandra; Giacomelli, Gene; Kubota, Chieri; Tignor, Milton (2005-02-10
      Lynn Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, talks about how their retail operation has grown over the years and what the breakdown of plants versus hardgoods is now.

      Lynn Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, describes how she and her husband, Justin, started their business.
  • McMahon, Margaret; Wilson, Sandra; Giacomelli, Gene; Kubota, Chieri; Tignor, Milton (2005-02-10
      Justin Marotta, owner of Possum Run Greenhouses, shows their new photo period controlled, 10,0000 square feet plus newest glass greenhouse range specifically designed for fuchsia production. All of their facility is heated by hot water. Greenhouse environment is controlled by computer (shade/energy cloth, heating, cooling, HAF, etc.) About half of the their greenhouses are glass; the other half is poly covered. Mr. Marotta thinks that if he were to build over again he would use only glass because of light intensity.

      Measurements of net nitrification rates in forest soils have usually been performed by extended sample incubation (2-8 weeks), either in the field or in the lab. Because of disturbance effects, these measurements are only estimates of nitrification potential and shorter incubations may suffice. In three separate studies of northeastern USA forest soil surface horizons, we found that laboratory nitrification rates measured over 1 day related well to those measured over 4 weeks. Soil samples of Oa or A horizons were mixed by hand and the initial extraction of subsamples, using 2 mol L-1 KCl, occurred in the field as soon as feasible after sampling. Soils were kept near field temperature and subsampled again the following day in the laboratory. Rates measured by this method were about three times higher than the 4-week rates. Variability in measured rates was similar over either incubation period. Because NO3- concentrations were usually quite low in the field, average rates from 10 research watersheds could be estimated with only a single, 1-day extraction. Methodological studies showed that the concentration of NH4+ increased slowly during contact time with the KCl extractant and, thus, this contact time should be kept similar during the procedure. This method allows a large number of samples to be rapidly assessed. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
