Fruit and Vegetable Field Day (Ames)

Monday, August 5, 2019 - 2:00pm to 6:30pm
Event Type: 

Specific projects include high tunnels, organic vegetable production, pepper and sweet potato production, pest management in cucurbit crops, hops, peaches, and beneficial insects such as bees, wasps and pollinators. Ajay Nair, associate professor and extension vegetable production specialist, said growers will also see how biodegradable plastic can be used for pepper production, and they’ll get to see equipment demonstrations, including finger weeders. “The main goal is for producers to assess and get exposed to some of the innovative research we are doing here at Iowa State University, and also for them to see things in person,” Nair said. Producers will also get to review the latest research in irrigation and pest management, and they’ll get to see how peaches can be grown using high tunnels. https://www.extension.iastate.edu/vegetablelab/2019-fruit-and-vegetable-field-day
