Abstract


Fruit and vegetable nutrition is crucial to produce a profitable crop. Under the umbrella of nutrition, fertilizer and irrigation go hand in hand. It is the growers’ responsibility to ensure their use of water and fertilizer is responsible while still gaining an economic advantage. Most growers in the Southwest Florida area
utilize Best Management Practices (BMPs) in order to achieve this goal. In response to grower and county extension agent requests for educational training in the areas of fruit and vegetable nutrition, a group of agents and a specialist located in Manatee and Hillsborough counties created a program to meet these needs.
