US (NY): Best management practices course on high tunnels and soil health

Cornell's vegetable program is organizing a special On Farm Field Day to dig into best management practices for soil health in high tunnels. 

Soil tests, foliar tests, foliar feeds, fertigation, managing for yield, long term soil health in a high tunnel isn't a simple process. It can have a lot of components and require a fair amount of analysis. Leon Vehaba is a long-time grower and will share some of his tips, tricks and lessons learned. 
Cornell Cooperative Extension, partnering with NOFA-NY in a New York Farm Viability Institute funded project, have been working to identify long-term soil health and fertility best management practices. We will share what has been learned at the Poughkeepsie Farm Project and at other farms across the state in a conversation focused on development of best management practices.

This event is produced by NOFA-NY with support from the New York Farm Viability Institute.
