Description/Notes: 

Come learn about how grafted tomatoes can be used in high tunnels to increase yield, reduce ripening disorders and prevent diseases.  Garrett County Extension was awarded a SARE Partnership Grant to research ways grafted tomatoes can increase profitability in high tunnels.  Much of the research has been focused on reducing yellow shoulders in the variety ‘Big Beef’.  Results from 2016 research will be shared as well as view research plots in the high tunnel.
