As usual, this year’s guide includes updated insect, disease and weed control information as well as new variety recommendations. There are also new variety tables, including disease resistance information, days to maturity and quality characteristics for some crops, such as snap beans, cole crops, cucumbers and sweet corn. Plant tissue testing critical values are now included for some crops as well.
