- Vegetables: peas (culinary)
- Crop Production: double cropping, nutrient cycling, application rate management, tissue analysis
- Production Systems: general crop production
Excessive nitrogen reduces the yields of pumpkins, and this farm trial grant will use the pre-sidedress nitrate test to determine if additional nitrogen needs to be applied to a pumpkin crop that follows an early planting of peas. Outreach will be through an article in the Rutgers Plant and Pest Advisory.
