Follow up NSFGA Convention recordings and more virtual opportunities

Wednesday, February 16, 2022

A playlist for the NSFGA Annual Convention recordings is now available. The videos are in a private playlist and are available from only the direct link. The Joint Labour Session is also included in the playlist.

Please note that due to technical difficulties, three videos not recorded: Resurfacing Relevant Research, Industry Updates, and Powdery Mildew are not available. You can find copies of the powerpoint slides for Resurfacing Relevant Research and Powdery Mildew on the links to my Google Drive.

Even More Professional Development

In addition to my recent post about professional development opportunities, I would like to add the following two additional opportunities:

UMass - Winter Webinar Series

The Northeast Extension Fruit Consortium will be once again presenting its Winter Fruit Meeting Series. Webinars include 1) precision crop load management in Honeycrisp, 2) understanding the ins and outs of copper and use against bacterial disease management on stone fruits, 3) herbicides - materials, timing and rates, 4) Northeast cider apple project, and 5) plum curculio research on update and management.

Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Convention

February 23 + 24 All day

OFVC is an annual 2-day gathering of horticultural crop producers involved in the production of fruits and vegetables. The convention is attended by a cross section of the horticultural sector including government, industry, business, consultants, producers, associations, researchers and educators from across Canada and features a great lineup of horticultural experts, educational sessions, trade show exhibitors and great networking opportunities. This event is happening in-person but I recently became aware of the opportunity to attend virtually. For more information and to register visit their website and note that tickets include live and virtual session access.
