swiss chardAs the farming community continues to innovate and adapt, the upcoming Season Extension Workshop on February 26 at 6 p.m., County Services Building, 60 East Court Street, Marion, aims to explore the numerous methods and benefits of extending the growing season. This workshop is a golden opportunity for farmers to delve into techniques that can advance their agricultural practices.

Why consider Season Extension?

1. Maximize Yield: Season extension techniques, such as high tunnels and caterpillar tunnels, enable farmers to extend their growing season, providing additional time for crops to flourish. This translates to increased yield and productivity.

2. Crop Diversity: By extending the growing season, farmers can diversify their crop selection. This not only adds variety to the produce but also opens up opportunities to cater to different market demands.

3. Risk Mitigation: Unpredictable weather patterns pose a constant challenge to agriculture. Season extension provides a buffer against adverse weather conditions, reducing the risk of crop loss due to frost or other weather-related issues.

What to Expect:

1. Some Insights:  Various season extension methods will be shared from basic to more advanced.

2. USDA High Tunnel Initiative:  Learn about the USDA High Tunnel Initiative from a local UDSA representative.

3. Personal Experiences:  Farmers will give their personal experiences on the USDA High Tunnel Initiative.
