Tomato Research Project

Sunday, April 17, 2016 @ 6:45 AM

Quesnel, B.C.  – Tomatoes  are the  focus of a new study  involving  CNC’s Quesnel campus and Edgewood Farm.

The study  till try to  answer a number of questions:

  • what kind of  tomatoes  grow best in the north,
  • do consumers prefer  the taste of heirloom varieties over  greenhouse hybrids
  • do  quality/yield rations differ between  plants grown  above ground in  7 gallon pots,  or those in the  ground in an unheated  greenhouse

All plants will be grown without the use of chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers (seaweed and fish emulsion and organic slow-release fertilizers only).

The project will start in May and run through to September.
