The CropKing Grower Workshop is a two day greenhouse and hydroponics training program that incorporates teaching and demonstration to provide participants a more clear understanding of controlled environment vegetable production systems. Participants will learn about CropKing's vine and leafy crop production systems and will be introduced to the central elements of hydroponic greenhouse design and management. Hands-on experience will be provided in the CropKing research greenhouse.



Join us for an in-person Grower Workshop at our headquarters & research greenhouse in Lodi, OH! In this two-day course, the CropKing team of horticulturists, engineers and technical consultants will lead you through the ins and outs of hydroponic production. From different types of growing media and pest management, to creating a business plan and building for wind or snow loads, you'll walk away with the knowledge to start your own hydroponic crops, whether you're looking for a hobby or a new business venture. We also include hands-on experience and training in our research greenhouse, working alongside our staff.

  • Size is capped at 12 attendees to enable more personal interaction with instructors, CropKing personnel, and attendees.
  • Workshops hosted at our office/greenhouse facility allow participants to meet with members of our sales and technical teams. You will have the opportunity to discuss business planning, system designs, or construction topics with our commercial sales team, the Lodi workshops are an excellent option.
  • Increased opportunity for hands-on experience because the CropKing Research/Teaching greenhouse has sections configured to enable planting, training, maintenance and harvesting techniques to be both demonstrated and practiced. You also receive more ‘plant time’ if you are interested in fertilizer mixing, lettuce seeding and harvesting, or tomato management.

Workshop price also includes all training materials and lunch for the two days. Travel and lodging are not included but we are happy to make recommendations!
