Across production systems, there are several important urban production topics a grower will need to learn about and consider in their risk management planning:

  • Urban soils and growing media
  • Soil contamination assessment and risk management
  • Nutrient management
  • Crop rotations and crop planning
  • Water management
  • Pest management: weeds, diseases, insects, and more!
  • Season extension
  • Harvest, post-harvest storage, and food safety

There’s a lot to learn. This section will give you a brief introduction to key concepts within each topic, to help you identify what you need to learn more about next.
