Vegetable Crops and Small Farms Advisor

The CE Advisor will support growers and processors of such high-valued vegetable crops with problem solving, field consultations, and applied research. The goal of the research program should be to improve yields and production efficiency. As this region is the major supplier of cool-season vegetables in the winter, a focus on disease and pest management research is important to remain competitive on a statewide and national basis. Water use efficiency and proper fertilization, and management are important issues to growers and deserve future research to meet state regulatory requirements.
