“HOW I’VE GREW A NEW NORTH AMERICAN RECORD” PUMPKIN OF 2,363-POUNDS IN 2017!!“

Early in the 2017 season I realized I had an excellent opportunity to do well. We were having a nice, warm summer with loads of sunshine. I decided to go for it!! It is easy to go overboard, so instead of doing too much, I increased the frequency of the fertilizer application on our schedule from every 7 days to every 5 days. The concentration of the foliar sprays and the amount of Mycorrhizae, and granular products was boosted by 50%. We had a very dry summer including 55 days in a row without any rain, a new record for our area of the country. I water out of a 1,550-gallon tank of pre-warmed water. I would much rather have the sunshine and apply the water myself.

SEED STARTING, POLLINATING AND WATER SYSTEMS

This DVD examines up close 5 different ways of germinating giant pumpkin seeds featuring several different successful competitive growers. Hand pollinating a controlled cross of two giant pumpkin cultivators is another aspect of this program. Male and female blossoms are identified and at least 4 different pollinations are demonstrated.

Watering systems are an important component of producing champion size pumpkins. At least 12 different effective water systems are explored with detailed information about each one. Many of these systems feature methods of heating the water before application. Both passive and active techniques of solar heating are shown. See what has worked for World Champion Growers of giant pumpkins and squash! The use of a fertilizer injection system for foliar feeding is also demonstrated.
