FIRM Welcomes USDA-ARS Scientist Dr. Jennifer Boldt

FIRM would like to welcome a new member to the team – Dr. Jennifer Boldt who officially joined the Greenhouse Production Research Group within the  USDA-ARS Application Technology Research Unit in Toledo, Ohio last October.  Jennifer holds B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Florida, and a Ph.D. in Applied Plant Sciences from the University of Minnesota. She  has over 20 years of commercial greenhouse production, garden trial management, and research experience – most recently in plant photosynthetic responses to light, temperature, and CO2, and the function and physiology of foliar anthocyanins. We are excited to have Jennifer and other members of the USDA-ARS team participate in FIRM meetings and events – and look forward to assisting the USDA-ARS in sharing their research efforts and results with the industry.  For additional information on research projects past and present, please visit the link to their website above.
