ORGANIC GROWER: RESEARCH
" We believe that for bell pepper, growers should focus
on spring-summer production and they would have a
transplanting window from late March to about April 20
without losing early harvest of color fruit, " Gu said.
Fall production of high tunnel bell peppers is not
recommended.
Gu's research also confirmed that plasticulture, the
use of plastic mulch and drip irrigation, a common
practice in field vegetable production, should also be
used in high tunnels. Previously, researchers assumed
the tunnels should be used without the research
support, he said.
Gu said he believes his studies will advance research
in at least two ways.
" An important one is how to take advantage of global
warming, as a result of climate change, in the early
season and mitigate negative impacts of global warming
with additional research on using shade cloth on high
tunnels later in the season, " he said.
Another important area will be to examine pigmented
and degradable mulch in high tunnels for organic and
conventional production systems. Degradable mulch is
not currently listed for organic production.
Before joining VSU in March, Gu was an Extension
VSU research in North Carolina examined how layers
of plastic cover and plastic mulch affect organic bell
pepper productivity in high tunnels.
horticulture specialist at N.C. A&T for a decade. The
tunnel research was funded by the USDA's National
Institute of Food and Agriculture, while a Specialty
Crop Research Block Grant supported the sequential
transplanting study.
