The Midwest Vegetable Production Guide for Commercial Growers is a collaboration of land-grant universities from seven states, said Dan Egel, clinical engagement associate professor of botany and plant pathology at Purdue University.
“It provides vegetable production information that is valid in the participating states for the current year,” he said. “This includes fertility, variety, cultural and pest management.”
Midwest Vegetable Trial Report for 2015 includes variety reports on vegetables and fruits including bok choy, sweet corn, watermelon, cantaloupe, specialty sweet peppers, hot peppers, pumpkins, winter squash, picking cucumbers and saladette tomatoes.
“One of the most useful aspects of the report is its long history,” said Liz Maynard, clinical engagement assistant professor of horticulture at Purdue. “Growing conditions differ year to year, so looking at results from several years can help farmers choose the best varieties.”
Vegetable Diseases: Tomato Disease Management in Greenhouses examines common tomato diseases found in greenhouse-grown tomatoes and provides management recommendations.
