Season Extension with Low Tunnels
October 29, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
New workshop on low tunnel season extension for strawberries! The workshop will include a demonstration on how to build, use, and compare the different options and prices for commercial use of this system. Low tunnel season extension is a great option for off-season strawberry production and other vegetable crops and has to the potential to aid producers with early and late cropping in the spring and fall.
There are multiple options for constructing low tunnels including structure materials used, spacing, plastic types and tying. This workshop will showcase these options as well as best practices for utilizing this method and costs of materials and production.
Javier Fernandez-Salvador (Strawberry Extension Faculty), Erica Chernoh (Faculty Research Assistant) and Will Osmer (Bioscience Technician for the project), will lead this workshop at the North Willamette Research and Extension Center where their strawberry trials are located, and participants can see the low tunnels in action.
Join us on Monday, October 29, from 1:00 to 3:00pm at NWREC, 15210 NE Miley Rd, Aurora.
Cost: Free. Suggested donation $5
