North Country Fruit & Vegetable Seminar and Trade Show

tomatoesWinter is just around the corner and so is the North Country Fruit and Vegetable Seminar and Trade show!

Registration is due in by this Tuesday, October 21.

This year’s event will be held on October 30th at the Mountain View Grand Resort. The daylong event will feature the always popular entomologist Alan Eaton who will focus on updates on North Country squash & sweet corn insect monitoring, and Spotted Wing Drosophila. This will be a great chance to get your insect questions answered.

Sustainable Horticulture Specialist Becky Sideman will be joining us again to share her results from a trial on overwintering onions, and a disease resistant variety trial on tomatoes.onion
New this year, Iago Hale, Assistant Professor of specialty crop improvement will be discussing his findings from hardy kiwi research. These kiwis aren’t what you find in the supermarket, but a favorite of gardening pioneers. We’ll also be facilitating a farmer to farmer exchange on growing crops for seed production.”
Lunch will be prepared by the Mountain View Grand and will feature a seasonal, local fare. Guests are encouraged to attend early and visit the trade show where a variety of agriculture vendors will be on hand.
