Midwest Vegetable Trial Reports from 2018 are Online

Looking for information about new crop varieties? Reports from trials conducted in 2018 are available online at https://ag.purdue.edu/hla/fruitveg/Pages/mvtr2018.aspx. You will find reports on variety performance of widely-grown crops such as sweet corn, pumpkin, summer squash and zucchini, melon, watermelon, picking cucumber, and bell pepper, as well as specialty crops including heritage beans, and mole and other specialty peppers.

Crops evaluated in high tunnels included Italian eggplant, colored sweet pepper, summer squash and zucchini, and tomato. One of the tomato trials evaluated varieties in a no-till system following cover crops. The other tomato trial compared soil blocks and pots for transplant production, and included six varieties grown to harvest in both high tunnel and field.

The Midwest Vegetable Trial Reports are just one place to find vegetable research reports from Land Grant Universities. The list below provides links to reports from other programs in the Great Lakes Region, Midwest, and Northeast.
