Exciting news – the sponsors are set, the agenda and speakers have been finalized! This year’s annual UF Stone Fruit Field Day will be held at the Frank Stronach Conference Center, at the Plant Science Research and Education Unit in Citra, FL on April 22nd, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:30 pm.
We have a great agenda planned with presentations on postharvest management of peaches, the impact of our current climate on the southeastern U.S., new AgroClimate apps, chill accumulation and options for management in peaches, crop insurance progress and options, and the quest to find out why our rootstock, ‘Flordaguard’ is resistant to nematodes.
Lunch will be free again this year, thanks to our very generous sponsors, which include: Philip Rucks Citrus Nursery, ColdPICK Technologies, Maxijet, Inc., Island Grove Ag Products, Growers Fertilizer Corporation, KeyPlex, Valent Biosciences, Syngenta, and Carden and Associates, Inc.
Please register by April 15th, so that we have an accurate headcount for lunch. There is a place on the registration form to input any dietary restrictions so that we can get the appropriate lunch for you and you won’t go hungry!
