About the Event

Extending the growing season – In this workshop, we’ll discuss approaches for extending the growing (and harvesting) season. This will include strategies like rowcovers, low tunnels, high tunnels, and ways to store crops for as long as possible after harvest.

Becky has a split appointment as an Extension specialist and Extension Professor in the Department of Agriculture, Nutrition & Food Systems. Before coming to UNH, she worked as a plant geneticist and lettuce breeder with the USDA Agricultural Research Service in Salinas, California. Becky received BA and PhD degrees from Dartmouth College and Cornell University. She grew up on a diversified farm in Vermont.

Her applied research projects have the goal of helping growers to minimize production costs and ecological impacts, while producing economically viable yields of high-quality crops. Recent projects have focused on identifying new crops, cultivars and production practices, including season extension technologies, that expand opportunities for vegetable and berry growers in northern New England.
