Permalink Updated Midwest Vegetable Production Guide and Variety Trial Report Available

Purdue Extension has released its updated 2018 Midwest Vegetable Production Guide for Commercial Growers. The guide is an annual summary of state-specific information on vegetable varieties, fertility, seeding rates, fertilizer rates, weed control, insect control, and disease management. The 2018 edition has been updated with new recommendations and resources from land-grant institutions in eight states. New and revised sections include updates on insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides; plant-parasitic nematode management; an updated pesticide application record form; modified variety recommendations, including sweet potatoes; and disease, weed, and insect management. The guide is for sale in print or available as a free download. A companion publication, Midwest Vegetable Trial Report, provides yield and quality data based on field test results under different cropping conditions for multiple varieties of beans, cantaloupe, cucumber, ornamental corn, pepper, potato, pumpkin, squash, sweet corn, tomato, and watermelon. The annual report is compiled in cooperation with the Extension services of the University of Illinois, Kansas State University, the University of Kentucky, Michigan State University, and Ohio State University. It is also available for free download.
