1. Share the impacts of insect waste products (i.e. frass) on vegetable crop yields, germination, and quality.
2. Conduct additional germination experiments in the greenhouse.
3. Describe peat alternatives for controlled environment vegetable crop producers that meet their media and fertility needs.
4. Disseminate research results by writing two fact sheets for specialty crops producers.
