FOCUS SITE PROJECT: DEVELOPING A PICK YOUR OWN PUMPKIN ENTERPRISE

Project Objectives:

The main aim is to explore the financial benefits of establishing a small scale PYO pumpkin enterprise and to evaluate any additional benefits from engaging with the local community such as increased sales of other produce and raising profile on social media.

The project will focus on:

  • Choice of varieties considering colour and size requirements
  • Comparing growing from seed indoors with direct planting outdoors
  • Optimum planting density
  • Providing the correct nutrient balance
  • Weed control
  • Recording any disease issues especially Blossom End Rot
  • Determining whether irrigation is required
