General Overview

The adage "practice makes perfect" is important to the success of any endeavor, including growing vegetables. Join Noble Research Institute horticulturists as they review the various practices that growers need to master to be successful in growing vegetable crops.

You will learn about the following practices specific to growing vegetable crops:

  • Field preparation.
  • Crop establishment.
  • Soil health/plant nutrient management.
  • Irrigation.
  • Weed control.
  • Insect/disease management.
  • Post-harvest handling and food safety.

At the end of the program, you will have a basic understanding of the various practices utilized in the production of vegetable crops.

So You Want to Grow Series Overview
The practices used in the production of specialty crops are similar in some ways; however, many are unique to the specific crop. This series will introduce prospective growers to the specific practices required to produce three types of specialty crops: pecans, vegetables and fruits.

This three-part series builds on information presented in the course “Is Specialty Crop Production for You?” The series is designed to help you achieve success through learning how to systematically approach specialty crop production.
