Although cooling increases production cost, it is essential to maintaining high product quality. No amount of cooling, however, will improve poor-quality produce. If you wish to have high-quality produce after cooling and storage, you must start with high-quality produce. Maintaining quality requires harvesting the crop at the correct stage of maturity; handling it with tender, loving care; and quickly cooling it to the proper storage temperature.

Average: 4 (1 vote)
Your rating: None

High tunnels are valuable assets to growers enabling them to produce high yields of quality horticultural crops. However, different strategies and more detailed management are required with this method of production. The objective of this workbook is to provide growers with the information and resources to use high tunnels effectively, enhance productivity and net income, and learn from the experience of other high tunnel users.

Average: 3.5 (2 votes)
Your rating: None

Los objetivos de la fertilización son: por un lado, restituir al suelo los nutrientes que la planta extrae durante su desarrollo, cultivo o ciclo vegetativo; y, por otro lado, enriquecer el suelo cuando la concentración de algún nutriente es insuficiente para asegurar la correcta nutrición del cultivo.

Your rating: None

Background considerations

1. Existing and future farm policy and equipment.

Existing and future farm policy will dictate the area, variety and rotation of the crops to be sprayed; different crops will have different spraying requirements, such as types of chemical, application rates and the timing of applications.

2. Timeliness.

Rainwater Catchment from a High Tunnel for Irrigation Use

Your rating: None

High tunnels, also referred to as “hoop houses,” are simple, plastic-covered, passive solar-heated structures in which crops are grown in the ground. High tunnels resemble greenhouses, but are less expensive to construct and maintain. Fruit and vegetable growers use them to extend the growing season and intensify production in cold climates. The advantages of growing crops in high tunnels rather than in fields are:
