Welcome to the 2016 Season from the New Editor

Welcome to a new year of the Vegetable Crops Hotline! Starting with this issue, I will be the new editor of VCH newsletter. If you do not know me yet, I am the horticulture specialist located at Vincennes, IN. I am excited to work more closely with VCH. I also feel responsible to continually provide you a great newsletter. As always, our goal is to provide timely information that is useful for Indiana vegetable growers. If you have any suggestions, comments, or just want to share with us your experience about VCH, please do not hesitate to contact me at 812-886-0198, or email at guan40@purdue.edu.

Taking the opportunity, I would like to thank you for your unconditional support of VCH. Without your support, it is impossible for us to put everything together. I would also like to thank Liz Maynard for her years of dedicated service to VCH as an editor. What you did not see from the front is her years of work on every single detail of the newsletter. Dan Egel and Rick Foster provided many of the articles, their work always keep us on top of controlling vegetable diseases and pests. I also appreciate the work from all of the other authors who provide us guidance on various aspects in vegetable production.

Vegetable Crops Hotline Newsletter has a new look. You can still find all the previous articles published in VCH. Articles will be posted timely, not just when an issue is compiled. Hard copy of this first issue of the year is sent to all who subscribed in 2015 as well as new subscribers for 2016. Members of Indiana Vegetable Growers’ Association (IVGA) receive the Hotline at no extra charge. If you wish continue to receive future copies by US mail, renew your Hotline subscription or IVGA membership for 2016. When an issue is published we email an announcement to everyone who has provided us with an email address.

As usual, if you aren’t able to access the links we provide in the VCH articles, please contact us or a local extension office to request a hard copy of the information.

Hope everyone has a happy and productive season.
