This year we have an exciting program, featuring Chalmers Carr, owner of Titan Farms, the largest peach orchard operation east of the Mississippi River. Additional topics include updates on critical bud temperatures in peach (are our varieties different?), potential nematode-resistant rootstocks for Florida, new insects of concern, and nematodes in Florida peach orchards.

We will also touch base on the failure of the marketing order, and what the next steps are towards a Florida Peach Growers Association/Organization.

CEU credits will be available for application to pesticide licenses (1-1.5 anticipated).

Lunch, coffee, and break items will be graciously provided by our sponsors – so please thank them if you see them at the field day!

Please register to receive a ticket for lunch – deadline for registration is April 12th, 2016.
