The field day will offer beginning and experienced growers valuable research updates regarding disease management, insect management, weed control, and new pumpkin and winter squash varieties.
Current production information designed to help growers will be presented during a research plot tour by experts from the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) and Ohio State University Extension.
Included will be a seven-treatment powdery mildew fungicide demonstration trial, a powdery mildew fungicide drip irrigation trial, a pumpkin variety trial with 20 hybrids ranging from small to large fruit and a variety trial with 11 winter squash varieties.
There will be presentations on how to identify and control weeds, insects and diseases. After formal presentations, growers will have time to revisit any of the plots in more detail and talk to specialists.
