In this episode, I interviewed Ajay Nair, Associate Professor and Vegetable Extension Specialist with Iowa State University. Ajay talks with us about his upcoming Annual High Tunnel Short Course and what we can expect if we join him next week. The course will discuss advanced production-related issues in high tunnel crops.

This course is an opportunity for growers, educators, and industrial personnel to discuss the different aspects of high tunnel crop production, As well as highlight more recent research, and hear from speakers from the region and other states who work on high tunnels so our growers can get a different perspective on crops and management techniques that can be utilized inside of a high tunnel.
