Performance targets from proposal:
A comprehensive survey of extension- and grower- educators at the completion of this project will document the following:
Extension- and grower-educators will have a significant increase in knowledge and skills specific to high tunnels and season extension technology when this project is completed in 2011.
All extension- and grower-educators will have used information and resources derived from this training program in six regional workshops and field tours which they have facilitated or participated.
As a result of this program, approximately 200 West Virginia growers will be exposed to high tunnel technology and at least 20 growers will have adopted this technology on their respective farms by 2011.
