Due to COVID-19, the 2021 Georgia Citrus Association (GCA) Conference will not be held in person. Instead, the GCA is launching a new website and membership platform. This state-of-the-art tool will allow members to view presentations by experts at any time.
Topics include weed management, citrus diseases and disorders, testing for diseases, precision agriculture, crop insurance, cold protection and the University of Georgia rootstock trial in Lowndes County.
The presentations are sponsored by Maxx Manufacturing, Ag-Pro, Maxi Jet, Syngenta, SQM, Farm Credit and Hudson Crop Insurance.
While members can join or renew their membership at any time, the GCA annual meeting will be held online on Feb. 22. Members with an active membership (2021 dues paid), can sign in and vote on association matters on that day only. In addition to the presentations, the website will be sponsored by industry leaders. Website and contact information for each sponsor will be available.
Lindy Savelle, president of GCA, said, “We are living in different times these days. While we are disappointed we cannot meet in person this year, we are excited about what our new website and membership platform will have to offer, not only in 2021, but in years to come.
“As we grow, the membership forum will allow our members, both large and small, to share photos, information and data among each other. Persons new to the industry can find answers to questions, and experienced growers can share what works and what does not. Georgia’s citrus industry is so new there are no experts here. We are growing in this business together and sharing is what we must do to bring success to all of us. We hope you consider joining the association and getting involved in the leadership of Georgia’s citrus industry.”
