Alabama Extension encourages its producers to utilize the 2021 Southeastern U.S. Vegetable Crop Handbook during this year’s production season.

Not only does it provide expertise from specialists from 12 land-grant universities, including Auburn University, it provides information pertaining to various disciplines. These include entomology, agricultural engineering, vegetable production, soil science, plant pathology, postharvest physiology and weed science.

Four Alabama Extension specialists contributed to this year’s handbook, including: Steve Li, weed scientist; Ayanava Majumdar, entomologist; Ed Sikora, plant pathologist; and Joe Kemble, vegetable specialist.
