This year only: we’re taking the High Tunnel conference online: High Tunnels After Dark. Three weekly evening sessions, one low price: $25 will enable you to attend all three sessions.

Want to fine-tune your high tunnel crop production?  This conference is for high tunnel vegetable growers and agricultural service providers of all experience levels. There will be plenty of opportunities to share expertise and learn from one another.  Pesticide applicator recertification credits will be available for those who attend live.

Tues, Dec. 1. 5-7 PM. Keynote and Kickoff: We welcome Dave Chapman, from Long Wind Farm in East Thetford VT, who will present: “Low tech tunnels to high tech greenhouses: choosing technologies that work for you”, and “Important business considerations for tunnel producers”.

Tues, Dec. 8. 5-7 PM. Diseases & Insects in High Tunnels – Common and not-so-common problems and how to manage them.

Tues, Dec. 15. 5-7 PM. Soil, Pest and Crop Management in Tunnels. This third session will focus on adjusted high tunnel fertility guidelines and how they are working in practice, an update from the seed industry on high tunnel varieties, and tips for excellent pesticide coverage in tunnels.

GROWERS, WE WANT YOUR HELP: We are looking for Lightning Round presenters. In the Lightning Round, presenters have one photo or slide, and present an idea in just three minutes. Maybe you have a favorite tool, and interesting technique for pruning, or a new crop or technology that you tried. Maybe it worked, or maybe it was a spectacular failure! If you are willing to share your knowledge with the group, please tell us. To pitch your idea, please email becky.sideman@unh.edu. For the ideas we select, presenters will receive FREE registration to the conference! So please send those ideas in.
