STRAWBERRY OPEN HOUSE
This year, the Nebraska Strawberry Team has been growing and marketing strawberries during the winter using a heated high tunnel. An open house was held March 28, at Pekarek's Produce Farm near Dwight, Neb., to allow produce growers, extension agents, farmers, farmer's market vendors, students and others to see this sustainable production system and visit with the grower and UNL scientists involved. The team would like to thank all who attended. Please take the time to comment or offer suggestions — see Comments Form below. Your input is valuable. Thank you.
