Description

High Tunnel tomato production is one of most profitable and important crops for small diversified farming operations. High tunnels extend the growing season and increase marketable yields. This workshop is open to all but is geared to commercial production, it will briefly cover the basics and focus more on advanced management. Experienced growers are welcome to share information so we can all improve our production systems.

Topics will include:

*High Tunnel Design considerations for Tomato production.

*Trellis and pruning Systems

*Variety Selection and grafting

*Irrigation and Fertilization strategies, monitoring nutrition.

*Organic Pest and Disease Management

Brandon Family Farm is a certified organic produce farm started in 2015. In 2017 we will be growing about 4 acres of vegetables and strawberries and have ¼ acre in high tunnel production. Produce is marketed through farmer’s markets, restaurants and local supermarkets.
