University of Kentucky seeks grower input for cucumber study

Led by W. Garrett Owen, the study is focused on controlled environment cucumber production.


University of Kentucky researchers are seeking input from individuals or businesses producing cucumbers under protected culture. Growers of cucumbers in greenhouses, high tunnels/hoop houses, or indoors, e.g. shipping containers or warehouses, or in-ground farm fields are encouraged to participate. This 12-minute industry survey aims to address production challenges and focus on information related to production and systems, culture, harvest and handling and marketing of cucumbers. 

Except for your time, there are no risks or conflicts of interest associated with participation in this study and participation is voluntary. All responses will remain confidential. Your anonymous input for the survey will help identify research and Extension priorities in the United States. 

If you or your business currently grow, or are interested in growing cucumbers under protected culture, and are willing to participate in this short survey, click here to take the survey.

The survey will close on Sept. 1, 2020. Questions or additional feedback, please contact Dr. W. Garrett Owen at
