Vegetable Fertility Considerations for Season Extension
Interested in pushing your fruits and vegetables further with season extension techniques?

Season Extension with High Tunnels: Know Before You Grow

March 6 - April 10, 2018
Every Tuesday, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Season Extension with High Tunnels: Know Before You Grow
Adding weeks to either end of your growing season can mean attaining a premium for having products available well before (or long after) other local growers. But the structures that make this possible --(unheated plastic-covered "high tunnels" or "hoop houses") can cost a lot of money, and they bring special management considerations that need to be understood in order to be profitable additions to your farm.

Offered as an online course through the Cornell Small Farms Program, this course (BF220) is meant for farmers who already have some experience successfully growing vegetables outdoors and are exploring high tunnels as a way to expand the season or improve plant quality. Information will be focused on using high tunnels in colder climates (US Climate Zones 4-6), but can be adapted to other growing regions.

The labels that will be covered include Lorsban Advanced, Endigo ZC, Warrior II with Zeon Technology, Agri-Mek SC, Beseige, Gramoxone SL 2.0, Leverage 360, Danitol 2.4EC, Mustang Maxx, Asana XL, and Lannate LV.
