US (NH): Pest and nutrient management in caterpillar tunnels

New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station researcher Dr. Becky Sideman is studying tomato growth in caterpillar tunnels at the UNH Woodman Horticultural Research Farm. Learn more about her research virtually “As If You Were There.”

In partnership with the experiment station at UNH, the USDA Northeast Climate Hub recently unveiled its virtual demonstration tour for UNH’s Woodman Horticultural Research Farm, an experiment station facility. This is one of 11 videos that helps viewers understand what climate resilience planning looks like right now.

In this tour, learn about Sideman's work studying  potassium fertilizers. Potassium affects fruit flavor and ripening and can help maximize the quality and yield of tomatoes growing in high tunnel systems. Dr. Sideman is also looking at biological pest control.
