Root Crop Production Intensive

September 10, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Root crops are a key player in year-round local food availability, and can be incredibly productive and provide high levels of nutrition on modest amounts of land. Learn best varieties, planting times, expected harvest schedules, nutritional requirements, and disease and insect protection for a diversity of root vegetable crops. We will cover common crops such as beets, carrots, parsnips, and rutabagas as well as less common crops like salsify, jerusalem artichokes, and yacon.
