Organic Seedling Production Field Day at the UCSC Farm
Join Christof Bernau and Kellee Matsushita-Tseng of the UCSC Farm for a field day on organic seedling production on Wednesday, September 18 from 1-4pm.
Learn best practices for producing strong transplants that will thrive in the field. From sowing through germination, seedling development to hardening off and holding strategies, all stages of seedlings’ life cycle will be touched upon at this free event.
This field day is geared toward small- to mid-sized growers who produce or want to produce their own seedlings and will cover the fundamentals of greenhouse design and siting with an emphasis on system efficiencies including materials handling, soils, sowing methods, irrigation strategies, and reduced time and labor. Other topics will include preventing and managing pest and disease issues in diversified, organic seedling production.
Christof and Kellee will also discuss trial results from fertility inputs and peat and coco soil mix trials with a focus on looking at how to produce the best seedlings with time/labor and resources as primary considerations.
This free event is funded through a California Department of Food and Agriculture Specialty Crop Grant.
