UVI’s ginger production at the Agricultural Experiment Station on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix is the subject of a 30-minute segment being aired on the V.I. Department of Agriculture television series “Fresh From The Farm.” Dr. Thomas Zimmerman, an associate professor of biotechnology and agroforestry and assistant director of the Agricultural Experiment Station (AES) is featured on the program. The focus is on ginger production, harvest, uses, plant physiology and post-harvest storage. It will be run randomly on the local Government Access Channel for the next few weeks. The “Fresh From the Farm” program has previously featured papaya, sweet potato and sorrel research in the UVI-AES Biotechnology program.
