Pumpkin Grower Virtual Meetup - November 11th

Join the UMN Extension Fruit and Vegetable Team for a virtual pumpkin grower meetup on November 11th at 6:00pm. 

We all look forward to getting back to in-person events soon. However, while gathering restrictions are still in place, we will be "virtually" gathering pumpkin growers together on Nov. 11. This will be a chance for growers to share thoughts about the 2020 season, hear about recent findings from UMN and collaborating farmers, and get ideas for next year. 

Additionally, learn about squash mosaic virus management, and see results from the pumpkin variety trials. 

This will be an informal and interactive discussion.
