The study objectives were:
- Determine yield potential of Regiment, Space, and Tyee for each fall transplant date and identify best transplant dates
- Evaluate all eight varieties for their suitability for winter production
- Assess the leaf sugar content among varieties throughout the winter season
- Identify discernable growth and leaf characteristics among varieties that may assist growers in choosing those best suited to their market/objectives
The research provided recommendations for winter spinach production in high tunnels. The full report contains the process, detailed recommendations, and supporting data.
