Join UMass Extension for a research tour and grower twilight meeting! In the afternoon, we’ll tour the UMass Research Farm and hear about the graduate student and Extension research underway on the farm. Students and faculty are encouraged to come to learn about applied research and the research farm. In the evening, we’ll have talks targeted more to commercial vegetable growers. A representative from Toro will discuss the automated irrigation system set up at the research farm, and the Extension Vegetable Program will discuss their applied research trials in more detail.
Join us for both parts or just one! A light supper will follow the twilight meeting
