Vegetable & Fruit Research Blog

Onion data collection

UNH Cooperative Extension’s Vegetable & Fruit team, together with a group of undergraduate and graduate students at the University of New Hampshire, conduct research on vegetable and fruit crops. While we do much of our work at the NH Agricultural Experiment Station in Durham, NH, we are located throughout NH and our research project topics are driven by the needs of NH growers. We believe that using effective growing practices for our region (including new varieties, new crops, and season extension strategies) can help farmers diversify, improve yields, and improve crop quality. Many of our integrated research and extension projects focus on high-value specialty crop production systems and methods of extending the growing season (e.g. season extension). We offer an up-to-the-minute snapshot of what we're up to on Instagram at unh_sidemanlab.
