Adapting and Expanding High Tunnel Organic Vegetable Production for the Southeast
December 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST
Interested in learning more about high tunnel vegetable production in the Southeast?
Join OFRF and eOrganic on November 30, 2023 to learn more about cost-effective high tunnel protected culture systems. Commonly used for season extension and the production of high-value crops, high tunnels are increasingly recognized by organic growers for their many benefits to help overcome site-specific challenges. This webinar will present and discuss up-to-date findings and recommendations from this research project with a focus on enhancing high tunnel organic vegetable production for the Southeast, including crop management for season extension, environmental management for microclimate manipulation, soil health and nutrient management, and pest and disease management.
Dr. Xin Zhao will present on behalf of the interdisciplinary team of researchers and Extension experts from the University of Florida, Florida A&M University, University of Georgia, and USDA-Agricultural Research Service that conducted this NIFA-OREI funded research.
DATE CHANGE: This webinar is now taking place on Thursday, December 7th at 2:00 pm EST / 11:00 am PST. This webinar is free and open to all. Please register in advance.
