The Southeastern Vegetable Extension Workers Group has just released the 19th edition of the Southeastern U.S. Vegetable Crop Handbook.

This handbook represents a joint effort among Extension Specialists and Researchers from 12 land-grant universities in the U.S. who work in the area of vegetable production. These specialists and researchers represent a wide array of disciplines: agricultural engineering, entomology, olericulture (vegetable production), plant pathology, postharvest physiology, soil science, and weed science.

This handbook comprises up-to-the-minute information developed from research and Extension projects conducted throughout the southeastern United States.

Growers can get information on:

  • General Production Recommendations
  • Specific Crop Recommendations
  • Soil Pests—their Detection and Control
  • Calibrating Chemical Application Equipment
  • Registered Fungicides, Insecticides, and Miticides for Vegetables
  • Insect Control for Commercial Vegetables
  • Disease Control for Commercial Vegetables
  • Chemical Weed Control in Vegetable Crops

The handbook is geared towards larger scale conventional growers. However the book also includes information relevant to organic growers, such as cultural practices, variety selection, and information on primary pests and diseases.
