Sustainable and Organic Horticulture

Dr. Bertucci's research and extension efforts focus on sustainable fruit and vegetable production and will closely support the Center for Arkansas Farms and Food (CAFF). Research areas include new production methods, small farm sustainability and viability, and exploration of alternative crops or cultivars. He is the project leader for the Northwest Arkansas Specialty Crop Soil Health Program. His extension efforts support county extension agents and develop workshops and educational materials to distribute statewide.

He works out of Fayetteville near the main campus of the University of Arkansas. But his program is not restricted to Northwest Arkansas. He has plot work across the state, specifically in Hope, Batesville, Clarksville, and Kibler. These off-campus sites offer distinct environments for his research, and they also make the research more accessible and relevant to people from other areas of the state. 

He is the instructor for HORT 3503- Sustainable and Organic Horticulture and HORT 5993- Global Horticulture and Human Nutrition to Enhance Community Resilience and Food Security.
