Soil tests, foliar tests, foliar feeds, fertigation, managing for yield, long term soil health in a high tunnel isn’t a simple process. It can have a lot of components and require a fair amount of analysis. Leon Vehaba is a long-time grower and will share some of his tips, tricks and lessons learned. The Cornell Vegetable Program partnering with NOFA-NY in a New York Farm Viability Institute funded project have been working to identify long-term soil health and fertility best management practices. They will share what has been learned at the Poughkeepsie Farm Project and at other farms across the state in a conversation focused on development of best management practices.

This event is produced by NOFA-NY in collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension with support from the New York Farm Viability Institute.
