2016 Mid-Atlantic Commercial Vegetable Production Recommendations Now Available

Posted: March 31, 2016

The updated vegetable recommendations are now available as a hardcopy for purchase or as a pdf download!

Although the annually updated content remains the same, the Pennsylvania Commercial Vegetable Production Recommendations now has a new name in 2016! The 2016 Mid-Atlantic Commercial Vegetable Production Recommendations name now reflects the joint efforts of Penn State, Rutgers, University of Maryland, University of Delaware, Virginia Tech and West Virginia University that have provided growers with the most up-to-date information intended to help commercial vegetable growers make informed managerial decisions. The recommendations are based on multi-state research results and extension programs as well as the knowledge and experience of growers, county extension educators, and industry personnel.

In addition to this production guide, Fungicide Resistance Management Guides for Vegetable Crops Grown in the Mid-Atlantic Region has also been updated. This guide should be used as a supplement to the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Commercial Vegetable Production Recommendations Guide to help growers make decisions on the selection of in-season vegetable disease management products and manage for the development of fungicide resistance through selection and rotation of products in different FRAC groupings. The guide is composed of a series of tables organized by crop group and contains a list of recommended products for select diseases along with the fungicide resistance action committee code information.
