In response to a survey of growers’ needs, Matt Kochka, a UNH graduate student in plant biology, has been working with Iago Hale, assistant professor of specialty crop improvement, to conduct small-scale trials comparing the economics of the standard matted-row strawberry production system with those of an annual plasticulture system at Kingman Farm, one of five NH Agricultural Experiment Station facilities at UNH.
