Over the past 8 years, Dr. Roberto Lopez of Michigan State University and his graduate students at Purdue University have conducted extensive investigations of optimizing rooting through the use of supplemental lighting, root zone heating, water management, and fertilization. Interest in self-rooting of vegetative annual cuttings is increasing since it allows for improved crop scheduling based on market needs.
