Vegetable Systems Trial


Rodale Institute's new Vegetable Systems Trial is a side-by-side comparison of organic and conventional vegetable production systems. The project will study soil quality, economic profit, insect damage and weed tolerance, and nutritional quality (quantity of nutrients and other components) in organic versus conventional vegetables. Vegetables to be studied include produce that are widely grown, common for pesticide use, and are of the root, leaf, and fruit families, such as potatoes, lettuce, broccoli, and squash.

Stay tuned for more information and updates as this newly instated project progresses...
