Organic Ecology Season Extension

On May 6, 2010 the University of Minnesota Southwest Research and Outreach Center (SWROC) in Lamberton hosted its first Season Extension Day, drawing over 90 interested participants. Invited speakers included U of MN faculty and growers and covered topics related to extended season high tunnel and passive greenhouse fruit and vegetable production. Three of the presentations are posted here: a review of the 2009 season of the SWROC high tunnel; soil and fertility management for high tunnels; and growing raspberries in high tunnels.
View some of presentations from the Season Extension Day: Soil Fertility in High Tunnels by Dr. Carl Rosen, High Tunnel Raspberry Research by Steve Poppe, and SWROC High Tunnel:First Season Review and Lessons by Kelley Belina
