Scheduling Fall and Winter Vegetable Production in High Tunnels, Revisited – Vegetable Crops Hotline

Scheduling Fall and Winter Vegetable Production in High Tunnels, Revisited

In April we announced a new bulletin “Scheduling Fall and Winter Vegetable Production in High Tunnels”, available from the Purdue Education store at https://edustore.purdue.edu/item.asp?Item_Number=HO-330-W . With the fall/winter high tunnel season underway we are now announcing it again. The publication brings together information collected on farms and research stations in Indiana and Ohio to provide detailed guidance on scheduling vegetable crops for winter high tunnel production. It includes a fillable scheduling form, a planting date scheduling guide, two scenarios with revenue projections, and charts and figures covering six crops. It aims to help farmers improve quality and yield and help them better match production and market demand.

The ‘fillable scheduling form’ should be especially useful if you haven’t found a good way to keep records of planting and harvest dates in your tunnels and like to use pencil and paper. Your records over time are an invaluable resource for fine-tuning planting schedules for the conditions at your farm.

Another bulletin relevant to the winter high tunnel season, Managing Environment in High Tunnels for Cool Season Vegetable Production, is also at the Education Store https://edustore.purdue.edu/item.asp?Item_Number=HO-297-W.
