reduced OP and flow rate would extend irrigation duration and provide near-continuous watering of the plants that mimics evapotranspiration losses when water is applied just enough to meet crop needs, thus reducing leaching losses of water and crop

efforts have focused on selection for a suite of traits such as extended bloom periods and novel colors and forms intended to appeal chiefly to consumer preferences and aesthetics ( Horn, 2002 ; Hoyle et al., 2017 ). While some of these new hybrids are

Winter overseeding of dormant bermudagrass ( Cynodon dactylon sp.) athletic turf has been a common practice in the transition zone and southern United States. Winter overseeding provides an actively growing cool-season turfgrass stand that provides

. Results from both experiments indicate that NI can be used as an effective strategy to extend the growing season, inhibit winter dormancy, and increase yield of ginger and turmeric plants ( Tables 1 – 4 ; Figs. 2 and 3 ). Similar to our findings

-tunnel sides in the early spring, we may have promoted early-season growth and flowering. Together, these results show that the combination of DN cultivars and low tunnels are likely to extend the strawberry fruiting season 2 to 3 weeks earlier in the spring in

Rowcovers and high tunnels are two intensive production systems used by commercial growers to extend the season and to improve yields of vegetables and strawberries. There are many types of rowcovers. These materials are summarized with descriptive information, primary use, and cost. The basics of high tunnel construction are presented to facilitate setting up a high-tunnel system.
