    Proposal summary:

    Eric Rozendall, will evaluate different methods for overcoming a key difficulty in growing globe artichokes in the Northeast: seedlings much be started in greenhouses around March 1st, but due to their long tap root are often rootbound in their pots by the time they are set out.
