Faculty and researchers will be at their plots to talk about their research and to share best practices for small and medium vegetable and fruit producers. Topics covered will include natural pest and disease control, viticulture, no-till vegetable production, organic watermelon production, pollinator protection and beekeeping, and more.The Twilight Summer Field Day promises to be compelling for anyone interested in fruit and vegetable production, organic farming, and the challenges that growers face and how they overcome those challenges.  In the case of inclement weather, the 2019 Twilight Summer Field Day will be held on Friday, June 28.
