If you grow or plan to grow salad greens in fall, winter, or early spring, come and tour our winter salad greens research trials. Chat with us about what we’ve learned so far, and let us know what you’re doing.
See our ongoing trials comparing:
• Planting media & fertility
• Planting dates
• Several varieties and species
Graduate student Claire Collie, Greenhouse Specialist Brian Krug, and Vegetable & Berry Specialist Becky Sideman have teamed up to study how temperature and planting date impact rate of growth of greens crops. We’re growing on benches in minimally heated greenhouses, using organic production practices.
• Are winter salad greens a profitable crop for greenhouse producers that have unused space during fall and winter months?
• Does it make economic sense to provide supplemental heat when growing winter greens?
• Which species are most suitable for bench-top production?
Cost: Free. Registration requested so we know how many to plan for. To register, or if you require special accommodations in order to participate or have any questions, call Suzanne or Pat at 603-862-3200.
Our research is funded by the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food Specialty Crop Block Grants Program, and by the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station.
