Managing Crop Rotations in High Tunnels

A webinar titled "Managing Crop Rotations in High Tunnels Webinar" will be offered on February 28 at at 1:00 p.m. The webinar is being presented by the University of Illinois' Small Farm Webinar Series.

“Although the first crop in a high tunnel is often easy, subsequent crops may become increasingly difficult. This webinar will cover options for rotation and also strategies for managing situations that often arise where crop rotation is not feasible”, said Jeff Kindhart, University of Illinois Extension Educator. It will also include a discussion ranging from potential rotational crop options for those with movable high tunnels to addressing specific actions that can be taken by growers to avoid pitfalls they face with limited rotation practices.
