We just finished our watermelon field evaluation for summer 2020. Due to Covid we did not have as many field plots as usual, at least we got something out of this season. Thanks for everybody's help with planting, trailing and harvesting.

Due to covid all our field trials were delayed and we scaled down our summer field plots significantly. But al last we were able to transplant some watermelon this week! As you can see we are all staying safe in the field!
Winnie Gimode (PhD student) is very excited that this will be her last watermelon field transplanting. She will be graduating in August.
And here is Sammy Josiah (PhD student) planting his first field experiment.
