Hot off the press.

Rutgers University has just posted online its updated vegetable production recommendations for 2014, and they're available for free download at http://njaes.rutgers.edu.

Hard copies are available at local county Extension offices.

"Commercial Vegetable Production Recommendations," as the production guide is officially titled, is designed for commercial vegetable growers in the mid-Atlantic.

You can download sections by subjects, such as soil and nutrition management or pesticide safety. Or you can download recommendations by specific commodity, such as asparagus, spinach or strawberries.
