Survey Gauges Eastern Organic Growers’ Willingness to Use Mesotunnels for Pest Control

The University of Kentucky, in cooperation with Iowa State University, Current Cucurbit, Cornell AgriTech, and USDA-NIFA, is conducting a survey to learn about grower experiences using row covers and their willingness to adopt a new row cover approach known as mesotunnels. The study involves evaluating the use of mesotunnels in the eastern portion of the United States for control of the full range of pests and diseases in organic production of cucurbit crops. Cucurbit growers in the eastern United States are invited to participate in the anonymous online survey, whether they have previously used row tunnels or not.
