“Managing Crop Rotations in High Tunnels” webinar is part of a Small Farm Webinar series that will be offered from 1 to 2 p.m. Thursday.

“Although the first crop in a high tunnel is often easy, subsequent crops may become increasingly difficult,” Jeff Kindhart, University of Illinois Extension educator, said in a news release. “This webinar will cover options for rotation and also strategies for managing situations that often arise where crop rotation is not feasible.”

The webinar also will include a discussion ranging from potential rotational crop options for those with movable high tunnels to addressing specific actions that can be taken by growers to avoid pitfalls they face with limited rotation practices.

Participants can listen in from home, but University of Illinois Extension also offers the opportunity to join others at its Boone County Extension office at 205 Cadillac Court, Unit 5, Belvidere, IL 61008.

There is no fee, but registration is required to ensure adequate space and handouts. In addition, sessions may be cancelled for insufficient registration and attendees may be asked to consider an alternate location.

To register, call 815-544-3710 or visit https://webs.extension.uiuc.edu/registration/?RegistrationID=7578.
