Decision-making in regard to scheduling transplanting date is one of the least studied aspects of sweetpotato production. It is well documented that transplanting dates can potentially influence storage root yield ( Edmond and Ammerman, 1971

The use of MBr has been instrumental for the management of soilborne pests in many vegetable crops that use the plasticulture production system. Vegetable producers rely on soil fumigants to maintain successful production. However, MBr was found to
