“Variety Selection for Vegetable Production” – Rob Faux
Winter is the season for Farmer Delusional Syndrome. Fields do not have weeds, projects will take half the time and pictures in the seed catalogues tempt you to grow every new variety being offered for the next year. When reality sets in, vegetable growers realize that their winter planning decisions need to be based on data collected for their farm that reflects their soil, weather patterns and growing practices. Join Rob Faux in a farminar where he shares some of the data he collects and how it informs vegetable variety planning on his farm.
- Rob and his wife Tammy Faux own and operate Genuine Faux Farm, a vegetable CSA and poultry operation near Tripoli, Iowa. Rob has been conducting on-farm research for 8 years and regularly uses this data to inform production decisions.
