Vandervoet and Associates Spring 2016 Update

Field Update- Spring, 2016

The following pictures were taken on March 30, 2016 in the agricultural district to the west of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, colloquially referred to as the "Coast of Hermosillo". 

Honeydew Fields are developing well. There is currently "6 count" size fruit on the vine.

Seedless Watermelon fields are showing a strong first set.
Jalapeno Pepper plants are strong. As the vine grows, subsequent sets occur higher up.

As Jalapeno plants develop, additional posts and support line will be added.
