Description:

Tomatoes are the most important vegetable crop, both in Missouri and worldwide. Tomatoes also offer a unique set of challenges for commercial farmers and home gardeners alike. Join nationally recognized and local tomato experts for two days of educational sessions and tours of tomato farms at the Missouri Tomato Conference. Discussion topics will focus on both field and tunnel/greenhouse tomato production, and will include tomato culture, tomato cultivars, insect and disease management, fertility management, tomato grafting, harvest and postharvest handling, and tomato marketing. Keynote presenters include Dr. Rick Snyder, Mississippi State University, and Dr. Richard Weinzierl, University of Illinois. Two local tomato farmers are featured on the program, as are a host of regional tomato specialists. We will tour three farms on the second day of the conference. The program is funded in part with funds from the Missouri Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant program and Missouri USDA-SARE PDP.
