The Southeastern Vegetable Extension Workers Group (SEVEW) is proud to offer you the 25th edition of
the Southeastern U.S. 2024 Vegetable Crop Handbook. We are excited to provide growers, crop advisers,
county educators, Extension agents, and specialists throughout the southeastern United States with this
handbook.
This handbook represents a joint effort among Extension specialists and researchers from 15 land-grant
universities in the U.S. who work in the area of vegetable production. These specialists and researchers
represent a wide array of disciplines: agricultural engineering, entomology, food safety, horticulture
(vegetable production), plant pathology, postharvest physiology, soil science, and weed science.
This handbook comprises up-to-the-minute information developed from research and Extension projects
conducted throughout the southeastern United States. The key idea behind this handbook is to provide
you with a practical resource that conveniently fits on your dashboard. It contains the information that
you need to manage your vegetable crops, including which varieties to plant, planting dates, fertilizer
recommendations, cover crop selection and conservation tillage options, pesticide selection, grafting, fertigation,
plasticulture, postharvest handling, alternative pest management tools and suggestions, as well
as many other topics.
