Increasing smallholder vegetable farmer utilization of grafting and tunnel microclimate management tools

Citation

This poster outlines the three project phases: document baseline resource availability, develop educational products to increase stakeholder success using the tools, evaluate the educational products. Tomatoes and peppers are a key commodity in East Africa, and both grafting and low/high tunnels can reduce biotic and abiotic stresses on the plants, therefor improving yield and quality.

This presentation was given at the 2011 Horticulture Innovation Lab annual meeting.
