Vegetable Horticulture Program

The Vegetable Horticulture Program at SWFREC, headed by Dr_Monica_Ozores-Hampton, provides statewide leadership in both research and extension, specifically in the areas of vegetable transplant production and stand establishment. The program emphasizes practices that are designed to reduce early crop losses and increase cropping efficiencies. In addition, the overall program is part of a statewide effort to improve production efficiency, impart up-to-date knowledge, develop and implement needed techniques, and to transfer technological information on a variety of vegetable crops and cultural practices.
