Albert (Bud) Markhart lll passed away in 2012 after a fight with cancer. He was a distinguished advisor to us in this horticulture supplementation research. Dr. Markhart advised to continue increasing yields in the High Tunnel drip irrigation markets of fruits and vegetables, and additionally this science may be ideal to increase yields in the emerging Medical Marijuana industry.
