For many years, the Florida Citrus Show has provided citrus growers with an excellent networking opportunity and educational program. Now, the event has added vegetable programming that growers will not want to miss.
Show planners are developing a unique program for commercial vegetable growers that will combine traditional seminars with a “build-your-own” learning experience. After the morning general session, which hits on big-picture topics important to all growers, a breakout session covering vegetables will be held. The first half of the session will allow for one-on-one conversations between growers, researchers and Extension professionals. Growers will have the opportunity to address questions and challenges unique to their farms. Learning stations will include topics like pest management, disease control, nutrient management and much more.
Later in the vegetable program, traditional seminars will be presented by leading experts on key production topics.
During the breakfast and lunch breaks, vendors will be exhibiting the products and services needed to grow a successful crop. Exhibitors once again will be serving a tailgate-style lunch, which was a big hit during last year’s event.
