University of Maryland Extension in Garrett County will be hosting two farm visits on growing tomatoes in high tunnels with a focus grafted tomatoes on Tuesday, August 25th.  While tomatoes are one of the most productive and profitable crops in high tunnels, some varieties and types of tomatoes can have improved production with grafting.  Grafted plants take advantage of the characteristics of soil disease resistance and increased water uptake during periods of limited water.  At the two farm visits, participants will be able to observe grafted and non-grafted varieties in high tunnels.  Dr. Jerry Brust, University of Maryland Vegetable Specialist will be on hand to answer questions.  Jerry has years of experience in growing tomatoes and has conducted research on tomatoes in high tunnels.  

  • The second workshop will be held at the farm of the Lantz family south of Oakland on Rt. 560 starting at 6 pm.

If you have questions or need directions, please contact the Garrett County Extension office at 301-334-6960 or email Susan Codington at  We would like everyone to RSVP by calling or e-mailing.
