Extension Agents Rob Last and Bruce Mclean
Agricultural exploits continue in Orangeburg and Calhoun counties with the advent of the New Year. Recently, in Orangeburg, Extension Agents Rob Last, Bruce Mclean, I held a hands-on field day for muscadine pruning and fertility management. We were fortunate to have the local and technical college participate and answer questions about production, yield potential, insect and disease management for local growers. We focused on proper pruning techniques that support a healthy vine, different trellising systems/designs, and the structure of the vines. In other news, there will be a pre-plant cucurbit meeting on February 8th at Edisto REC in Blackville and cucurbit webinars on 2/10, 2/17. If cucurbits aren’t your thing, there is also a webinar series on Brassica production on 2/24 and 3/3. Pre-registration for the events mentioned above is required and can be found on the SC Grower web page: Website.
