High Tunnel Tomato On-Farm Research Project Seeks Growers

University of Vermont researchers are conducting a 2-year study to improve our understanding of the fertility needs of high tunnel tomatoes grown in the ground. I just received the following note:

We are inviting growers in Vermont and nearby states to participate in this study. The project will pay for soil tests at the UMaine lab and provide customized fertilizer recommendations for your tunnel(s). Growers must agree to grow at least one bed of red, indeterminate slicing tomatoes, follow the soil test recommendations, and track yields. If interested, please review the participant agreement for details and then contact Becky Maden with questions or to sign up, ideally by the end of the January 2020, at (802) 773.3349 x 277 or rebecca.maden@uvm.edu.
