KANNAPOLIS, N.C. - As greenhouse tomato growers in North Carolina are gearing up for the season, N.C. MarketReady, a program of N.C. Cooperative Extension, has launched the Tomato Growers Information Portal. The new Web resource is the third in a series of "growers information portals" developed by the program that provide North Carolina producers with one-stop shopping for their fruit and vegetable production needs. The Tomato Growers Information Portal currently features N.C. State University production resources for both greenhouse and field-grown tomatoes, including materials on economics, energy management and specialized equipment. Growers will find resources on marketing, food safety, integrated pest management, industry events and risk management specific to North Carolina tomato production. The portal can be accessed by visiting N.C. MarketReady online at
www.ncmarketready.org and clicking the Growers Information Portals tab on the left menu bar.
