Tennessee Field Day Helps Producers Turn Pumpkins into Profits
Pumpkin day in Tennessee has come and gone, but pumpkin season is here alive and well. University of Tennessee Extension Horticulturist Carol Reese helps provide valuable information to attendees of “Pumpkin Field Day,” where visitors can see “the newest and best varieties for the pumpkin patch…as well as learn about insect, disease and weed control.” As pumpkins are such a fall staple (pumpkin spice latte, anyone?), the more information available to growers, the happier consumers will be. Luckily, each year seems to only get better for pumpkins because of events such as UT’s Pumpkin Field Day.
