With fall nearing, those who plan to harvest pumpkins or those who want to learn how to tell the difference between pumpkins, squash, and gourds, can attend the Aug. 26 Pumpkin Field Day, offered by Ohio State University Extension.
The free field day will offer beginning and experienced growers valuable research updates regarding disease management, insect management, weed control, weather impacts on production, and new pumpkin and squash varieties.
Sessions will include how climate and weather impact Ohio vegetable crops, weed management and Reflex herbicide trial results, updates on the powdery mildew fungicide trial and germplasm hybrid trial and general disease management.
Registration for the event is required by Aug. 24.
The field day will follow Ohio State COVID-19 guidelines for an outdoor meeting, including social distancing and masks for those who are unvaccinated. All are asked to bring a mask in the event the guidelines change. Sanitizing stations and limited touch points will be utilized.
