Noble Institute Hosts Three-Part Specialty Crop Seminar Series Scheduled for Tuesdays in September

Tue, 14 Aug 2018 16:11:11 CDT

Noble Institute Hosts Three-Part Specialty Crop Seminar Series Scheduled for Tuesdays in September The Noble Research Institute will host a three-part specialty crop seminar series from 6:30 to 8 p.m., on Tuesdays, Sept. 4, 11 and 18, at the Noble Research Institute Kruse Auditorium to help landowners learn how to systematically approach specialty crop production.


This three-part series builds on information presented in the course, “Is Specialty Crop Production for You?” The seminars will provide a comprehensive understanding of pecan, vegetable and fruit production practices.


"Interest in specialty crop production continues to rise as demand for local grown produce continues to rise,” said Steve Upson, senior soils and crops consultant. “The practices used for various specialty crops are similar in some ways. However, specific crops require unique management.”


The Sept. 4 seminar will focus on pecans, the original “supernut.” Pecan culture presents unique management challenges due to factors including tree size, nutrient and water requirements, and the need for specialized equipment.


The Sept. 11 seminar will focus on the various practices needed to be successful in growing vegetable crops. Horticulturists will discuss field preparation, crop establishment, soil health and plant nutrient management, irrigation, weed control, insect and disease management, and post-harvest handling and food safety.


The Sept. 18 seminar will conclude the series with a focus on small fruit and tree fruit. Due to their continuous growing, fruit crops present special management challenges including pruning and training techniques.


This seminar series is free, but preregistration is required for each session. For more information or to register, visit www.noble.org/events or call 580-223-5810.
