Protected culture fertility survey!

Monday, November 1, 2021

Growing crops under cover is a separate skillset compared to growing under the open sky.  Fertility management, integrated pest management, environmental management are all very different.  Last year a survey went out to find out more about the protected culture industry in Nova Scotia.  To drill deeper on the learnings from that survey, Rosalie Gillis-Madden, Perennia's Vegetable Specialist, Talia Plaskett, Perennia's Protected Crop Specialist, and Caitlin McCavour, Perennia's new Soil Specialist would like to identify where there are knowledge gaps and pain points in protected crop production, specifically targeting fertility management.  Our goal is to determine where outreach and support might help the industry move forward and how we might serve you better.  This applies to growers who grow in soil or in substrate, who use conventional fertility or organic nutrient sources (composts, manures, organic fertilizer, etc.)  Please take the time to complete this survey to help us determine how we might best support growers, it should take you about 10 minutes to complete.

The mission of Perennia is to help farmers, fishers, and food processors be prosperous and profitable.
