High-tunnel meeting planned for August 3
Join us August 3 for a twilight meeting to learn more about adding fruit and vegetable production in high tunnels to your farm.
If you have been thinking about adding crop production in high tunnels to your operation, you will want to attend the twilight meeting that will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, August 3 at the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center (SWMREC). SWMREC is located at 1791 Hillandale Road, Benton Harbor, Mich.
The meeting will provide an opportunity to view a number of current research projects underway in the tunnels and provide some ideas for potential crops and growing methods for you to consider. Some projects have been underway for several years, while others are new this year. Meeting attendees will see sweet cherries grown as fruiting walls, performance trials of blackberry cultivars, day-neutral strawberries grown with and without shading, fall red raspberries in gro-bags, vegetables and cut flowers.
There is no charge for this meeting. Contact Diane Brown at the Berrien County office at 1-269-944-4126 for more information.
