High Tunnel Integrated Pest Management Training (Cancelled)

A workshop addressing persistent and emerging challenges in using low, mid, and high tunnels in commercial vegetable production more effectively.

Goal: Help growers use tunnels more effectively, regardless of scale, setting, system, or time of year. Plan: Discuss individual tactics and integrated approaches for including tunnels more effectively in managing crops, soils, pests, and diseases from before planting to after harvest.

 The program is best for growers who have some experience with tunnel-based production or who are serious about beginning to include it in their vegetable business. Everyone present will learn from each other. Brad Bergefurd (horticulture), Luis Canas (pest management), Erik Draper (horticulture), Matt Kleinhenz (horticulture), and Sally Miller (disease management) will serve as resource people representing Ohio State University Extension.
