Growers (including home gardeners) wishing to spend a few hours learning about the latest information in the field of vegetable crop production are encouraged to attend. There will be an opportunity for participants to visit commercial exhibitors throughout the evening to keep in touch with the latest pest control options, vegetable varieties, tools and financial products.
Credits will be available for those folks who attend who hold a Private Pesticide Applicator Certification. Anyone wishing to receive PARP credit will pay a $10 charge and should bring their license. Commercial Pesticide CCH’s in category 1 have also been applied for participants at this program.
