“Tacos at Twilight” Cucumber Grower’s Meeting

Join us for a taco dinner and a mid-season agronomic update from Elaine Roddy, OMAFRA Vegetable Crop Specialist and Rachel Riddle, University of Guelph Research Technician. Then, explore the impact of volume, droplet size and boom height on cucumber spray coverage with Dr. Jason Deveau, OMAFRA Application Technology Specialist. Attendees will participate in a group discussion as they are guided through the field to see which sprayer settings had the biggest impact on coverage using black lights and fluorescent dye. Space is limited, so register now.
